Recommendation: What happend in Africa should not stay in Africa

The focus of the public debates of the First World War is often only on Europe despite the war’s global scale already indicated by its name. Under the slogan “What happend in Africa should not stay in Africa” the blog World War I in Africa collects articles on the war in Africa. It is curated by Jacques Enaudeau, a French geographer and cartographer, and Kathleen Bomani, a Tanzanian cultural activist. Although they are no experts their goal is “educate ourselves as much as we hope to teach others.”1 You can also find the project on twitter with more interesting photographs and video clips.
