BERLIN (AFP) - Germany will face up to a bloody chapter of its colonial past Friday when it hands back 20 skulls spirited away after what many historians call the first genocide of the 20th century. A delegation of 55 Namibians is in Berlin to attend the solemn ceremony to receive the remains which they hope will be just a first step toward a greater reckoning with Germanys brief but brutal African adventure a century ago. We have come to first and foremost to receive the mortal human remains of our forefathers and mothers and to return them to the land of their ancestors, delegation member Ueriuka Festus Tjikuua told reporters in Berlin. He said the mission intended to extend a hand of friendship to Germans and encourage a dialogue with the full participation and involvement of the representatives of the descendants of those that suffered heavily under dreadful and atrocious German colonial rule.
