I have a Botswanan student who is researching for a documentary on a
massacre that took place in what was then the German colony of South West
Africa (Namibia) in 1904.  The Officer in charge of the killings was a
General Von Trotter.

there are supposed to be links of some kind between the labour camps set up
in Namibia and the concentration in the 30s.  Hitler is supposed to have
studied the Namibian experience and learned from it.

  Does anyone have any suggestions as to sources or he would go about
getting more information on this?  Help much appreciated.

regards


Gary
