Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How should countries deal with historical atrocities? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
More than a hundred years ago, German soldiers killed tens of thousands of indigenous people in what is now Namibia.
Last week, Germany apologised for the genocide, and agreed to pay 1.3 billion dollars for infrastructure projects over the next 30 years.
But Namibia’s Vice President says that’s nowhere near enough.
So how should countries confront atrocities committed in the past?
