German Missionaries in Southwest Africa (c. 1910)
Christian missionaries were part of European colonization. When Germany acquired colonies, German missionaries went there to educate and Christianize the indigenous peoples in the name of German culture. Here is the first-grade class in a missionary school (elementary school) in Windhuk, Southwest Africa around 1910.
