Germans Stop Revolt In SW Africa
On January 11th, a revolt by native Africans was initiated against German Settlement in South West Africa. The revolt was led by the Herero tribe. The natives were initially successful, overrunning several German settlements. They killed over 100 German settlers (only two were women or children). The Germans ruthlessly put down the revolt and within a few years, the Herero population had been cut to 20,000 from an original 80,000 persons.
