Germanys Black Holocaust 1890-1945: The Untold Truth! Details Never Revealed Before by Firpo W. CarrIn the 1890s Blacks were tortured in German concentration camps in Southwest Africa (now called Namibia) when Adolph Hitler was only a child. Colonial German doctors conducted unspeakable medical experiments on these emaciated helpless Africans decades before such atrocities were ever visited upon the Jews.
Thousands of Africans were massacred. Regrettably, historians neglected to properly register the slaughter?that is, to lift it from the footnote in history that it had been relegated to?until now.
In an attempt to give the incidents their rightful recognition in the historical context of the Holocaust, Dr. Firpo W. Carr has authored a new book entitled, Germanys Black Holocaust: 1890-1945. In it, he reveals the startling hidden history of Black victims of the Holocaust. The mayhem and carnage date back to the turn of the 20th century, many years before there were ever any other unfortunate victims?Jew or Gentile?of the Holocaust.
Carr conducted three incredibly revealing interviews with: (1) a Black female Holocaust victim; (2) the Black commanding officer who liberated 8,000 Black men from a concentration camp; and (3) an African American medic from the all-Black medical unit that was responsible for retrieving thousands of dead bodies from Dachau. (White medical units were spared the gruesome task.)
Kay, the Black female Holocaust survivor, laments: You cannot possibly comprehend the anger I have in me because of being experimented on in Dachau, and being called `nigger girl and `blacky while growing up.
Testimonials from the Black commanding officer and African American medic are memorialized, for the first time ever, in Carrs book. The research is based on voluminous documentation, and more.
If you are like most people, you simply have never heard the unbelievable story of Black victims of the Holocaust. You are invited to read about the human spirits triump over events that occurred during this horrible piece of hidden history.

As a student of history and finance myself, I was fascinated by her book read my review here , which exposed a side of capitalism and finance about which I know very little. Baradaran and I had a great discussion recently. Interview has been condensed and edited for clarity. Make Change: I want to have you explain some of the history of the Freedman's Savings Bank, which I had never heard of, and which is maybe the most awful story you tell. But I suspect, unless you were a scholar of black banking, most people don't know this story. It is meant to help freed slaves transition into capitalism. You've gone from being capital to becoming capitalists.

One of the largest such events took place on May first of that year but had been largely forgotten until David Blight, a history professor at Yale University, found records at a Harvard archive. In a New York Times article published in , Blight described the scene. Union captives were kept in horrible conditions in the interior of the track; at least died of disease and were hastily buried in a mass grave behind the grandstand. After the Confederate evacuation of Charleston black workmen went to the site, reburied the Union dead properly, and built a high fence around the cemetery. Then came black men marching in cadence, followed by contingents of Union infantrymen.
