    were born
  • Date back to the end of WWI as a distinct
    population
  • 19th century - Germany and Africa involved in
    trade
  • Blacks brought from Africa to show what blacks
    looked like and to prove Germans had really been
    to Africa.
  • Eventually to be slaves

11
  • During Middle Ages Africans were portrayed as
    evil
  • With the rise of National Socialism many
    Afro-Germans were sterilized
  • During third Reich Afro-Germans/Africans couldnt
    get or keep jobs
  • Citizenship and passports were taken away

Loss of Identity
  • Raised as Germans but not treated as Germans
  • Germans have their sense of nationality from
    Aryan purity - Afro-Germans left out
  • Ostracized by Germans - mulatto, moor, and
    Negro

Afro-Germans Today
  • 500,000 Afro-Germans make up the 80 million total
    population in Germany today
  • Many of the Afro-Germans today are of American
    G.I. heritage
