Horst Drechsler made a revolutionary move when he explored the “Report on the Natives of South-West Africa and Their Treatment by Germany” a.k.a. Blue Book, written by the South African invaders of German South West Africa. The East German historian, whose book “Südwestafrika unter deutscher Kolonialherrschaft: der Kampf der Herero und Nama gegen den deutschen Imperialismus (1884–1915)“ meant a paradigmatic change in the research of German colonial history, since the socialist scholar was the first who declared that the German rule in South West Africa was a form of colonial guilt.
