In New York, a second hearing has been scheduled in the case of two indigenous Namibian tribes that are suing the German government to demand compensation for Germany’s genocide of 100,000 people in now-Namibia between 1904 and 1908. The killings were carried out by German imperial troops when the region was a German colony. The killings are considered to be the 20th century’s first genocide.
