""In the 1890s Blacks were tortured in German concentration camps in Southwest Africa (now called Namibia) when Adolph Hitler was only a child. Colonial German doctors conducted unspeakable medical experiments on these emaciated helpless Africans decades before such atrocities were ever visited upon the Jews. Thousands of Africans were massacred. Regrettably, historians neglected to properly register the slaughterthat is, to lift it from the footnote in history that it had been relegated tountil now.
In an attempt to give the incidents their rightful recognition in the historical context of the Holocaust, Dr. Firpo W. Carr has authored a new book entitled, Germanys Black Holocaust: 18901945. In it, he reveals the startling hidden history of Black victims of the Holocaust. The mayhem and carnage date back to the turn of the 20th century, many years before there were ever any other unfortunate victimsJew or Gentileof the Holocaust.
Carr conducted three incredibly revealing interviews with: (1) a Black female Holocaust victim; (2) the Black commanding officer who liberated 8,000 Black men from a concentration camp; and (3) an African American medic from the all-Black medical unit that was responsible for retrieving thousands of dead bodies from Dachau. (White medical units were spared the gruesome task.)
"Kay," the Black female Holocaust survivor, laments: "You cannot possibly comprehend the anger I have in me because of being experimented on in Dachau, and being called nigger girl and blacky while growing up."
Testimonials from the Black commanding officer and African American medic are memorialized, for the first time ever, in Carrs book. The research is based on voluminous documentation, and more.
If you are like most people, you simply have never heard the unbelievable story of Black victims of the Holocaust. You are invited to read about the human spirit's triump over events that occurred during this horrible piece of hidden history.""
...I just need to know how many of you have heard about this???

I just heard about this a couple of years ago and this has been some devastating knowledge for me. I have heard of quite a few things in Black history that has never been put in books and information kept away from us, thanks to the internet a lot of truths are coming to the surface and it is very ugly and even uglier in my opinion is that it was kept away from us...
I concur with others who estimate the total lives lost is in the 10s of thousands, I've read similar.
Another thing is... rather than call what the Germans did to the Namibian groups the "Black Holocaust", I find it infinitely more chilling that most of the horrors inflicted by the Nazis in Europe were initially TESTED on Africans in Namibia.
The concentration camps, the torture, the dismemberment etc. They sent hundreds of Africans' skulls back to Germany for experiments to validate their racial theories.
Apparently it was this guy, Eugen Fischer, whose work on Africans inspired Hitler while he was writing Mein Kampf and also formed the basis of the Nuremberg Laws:
who was literally the most diabolical doctor in the Nazi regime.
The connection to Fischer is that MENGELE LEARNED/PERFECTED ALL HIS EVIL TESTING FROM FISCHER, who was the Director of the "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics" while Mengele worked there during the Nazi years.

The more I learn about these massive genocides, the worse I feel about leaders of the world. It seems as though a lot of leaders through history became sick gods, hated by some but some people actually worshiped these demons...
Even though it hurts reading these truths, reading and studying these truths makes us all better people, 'knowledgeable as to why things are the way that they are today. It just makes me stronger in dealing with different races of people...
Hidden history is a real b*tch!!! When I learn new hidden histories, it hits me like a BOMB!!! It really makes me wonder why are these truths hidden from us??? Does it give the oppressors more power??? One thing I do believe is that they kept books and knowledge out of our hands during slavery days because they knew that with knowledge we would not have been slaves, in fact, we might have put them under slavery.
Slavery is never, ever a choice but without knowledge you can be chained and held down but the more knowledge you have, the more FREE you become!!!
...I guess I kinda' answered some of my own questions here !!!

they go into detail about the different groups (including Africans) that were imprisoned and experimented on in addition to the Jews both during and even before WWII. there's a chart on the wall that the Nazi's used to "identify" people of different races. you can just feel that they are all captives, prisoners or something even though it's not explicitly stated at the time when you first see it. they later reveal that they captured those people for the purpose of conducting "scientific" experiments on them which were really nothing more than torture. very sadistic.
