The first genocide of the 20th century occurred not in Europe but in Southwest Africa, a colony that had been annexed by Germany in the early 1880s. Under German colonial rule natives were routinely used as slave laborers, and their lands were confiscated - land stocked with cattle essential to the Herero's life. Between August 1904 and 1907, the Germans attempted to exterminate the indigenous Ovaherero people. In total, from 24,000 up to 100,000 Herero and 10,000 Nama died.

The Herero and Namaqua Genocide is considered to have been the first genocide of the century. It took place between 1904 and 1907 in German South-West Africa (modern day Namibia), during the scramble for Africa.

The San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert and Hoodia Gordonii

The San Bushmen are a tribe from the Kalahari Desert in Africa that have an amazing history that is well worth reading about. It was also the San who discovered the sustaining food qualities of the plant called Hoodia Gordonii.

The Kalahari Desert is a large semi-arid sandy savannah in Southern Africa covering much of Botswana and parts of Namibia and South Africa. As semi-desert, with huge tracts of excellent grazing after good rains, the Kalahari supports more animals and plants than a true desert.
