Shark Island is a small island located off the coast of Nambia. It’s the site where over hundred years ago the Germans held a concentration camp which was also known as “Death Island”. Shark Island Concentration Camp is something like other African tragedies that is omitted from history Over 10,000 African people from the Herero and Namaqua tribe were killed between 1905 to 1907. At the time Nambia was under the German empire

    Then after WWI THE French took over their Africa colonies and the Germans women inter - married with the Black French Soldiers. Their off springs were called those Rhineland Bastards. Shortly after that speech, where he said he would get rid of all of them, the nazi party won the election and took power. The first thing he did was to sterilize all of them. They are members of the untold people of Hitler's concentration camps along with Black Servicemen that were captive. They told stories of how bad they were treated but the Rhineland Blacks were treated worst.

    We so easily forget about our own horrible behavior and even more if the victims are not white. It's disgusting. Thanks for the pin.

    There is so much history that we do not know. It is sad that this happened. I am so sorry. I cannot understand why women and children were killed like this. Thank you for exposing this.

  • Marnie Schwartz

    Thanks for your comments. It's important to know as much as possible. I hope it's true that you can prevent repetition by knowing what has happened. Unfortunately there always seems to be "other" that we believe we can ignore, exploit, harm and/or kill.

    That's messed up! white history is always hiding the truths

  • Marnie Schwartz

    I suspect all history hides the truths. I've also learned that truth is completely a matter of perspective. It's like two people witnessing the same incident and having different stories, sometimes vastly different. This was a painful lesson to learn but it helps me see that there is always space to compromise if all sides can see even a shadow of the others' perspectives.

This is what the women go through just because they are women, or they were of a specific religion! This is a pain to everyone involved and it must be stopped! - Ryan Sample

    I have always understood that a "cracker" was a poor at or below the poverty level, and that "redneck" referred to the working class farmer (sunburn), as opposed to the wealthy landowner.
