Joe, I have not said more because I know next to nothing about the subject.

I was hoping to learn more by opening a thread on the subject.

Is that really too difficult to grasp?

Talking of other atrocities in different wars, in different parts of the globe does not enhance my knowledge of the Kaiser's Holocaust.

Again, is that too difficult to grasp?

Those subjects have been discussed again and again ........ and again.

So I ask the question again, does anyone know anything about "The Kaiser's Holocaust"

Two books that marked the being and the end of the Imperial system

THE KINGS DEPART
and
WOLVES IN THE CITY

The first shows how the German people took up arms against the system that had slaughtered so many people and narrowly failed to create a worker's republic
The second is an account of the revolt of the French Army against a Government which had realised the days of Empire were over and marched on Paris with the intention of establishing a military regime - reads like fiction
Both still available

Many of us could be interested in the topic you specified, Raggytash. But instead of trying to restrict what others say, what further information can you find to share with us on the topic?

When I lived in Berlin, I expected that every black person I encountered would be an American, most likely a soldier. I was surprised to meet a few black people who spoke perfect, unaccented German. I'm supposing they might be descendants of nations colonized by 19th century Germany.

Joe,

The reason I was trying to limit this thread to the Kaiser's Holocaust was because the conversation had lurched into WW1, the German invasion of Belgium and the abuse of the Belgium Congo all of which have been discussed, at length, ad nauseum on numerous occasions.

The Kaiser's holocaust was a subject I had not heard of previously and, hopefully, like other people I wish to expand my knowledge.

Obviously I was mistaken, that is not a view shared by some on here, and they want to rattle on about the same old tropes again.

Sadly I can only presume you are one of them.

Truly I am disappointed, I'll go back to the books.

-it was ruled from Westminster

Like every other part of Britain, and like every other part it sent its own representatives to Westminster.

that WWI was a major factor in bringing the Kaiser's colonialism to an end,

Yes, ending abuses such as those mentioned in the OP.
It treated the parts of Belgium and France it occupied as colonies, rounding up thousands and shipping them to Germany as slave labour.

Well there is a lot of controversy over the true definition of colony and whether Ireland fits the definition. Since william the conqueror is England a colony of France? At a stretch it could be argued within the pale was partially colonised. Does that define it as a colony?
There are several possible candidates for "earlier colonies" than Ireland. These are the English "possessions" in France.

Normandy, of course (unless we want to count England as a Norman colony), the duchies of Gascony and Aquitaine, the Counties of Anjou, Poitou, Maine, Touraine, Saintonge, Marche, Perigord, Limousin, Nantes and Quercy. In short, the Angevin Empire in France.

We could also possibly count Wales (or at least the Welsh Marches) as an early English Colony, and Cornwall.

Later, after the first English lordship of Ireland, but before the second English Kingdom of Ireland, Calais in France was an "English Colony" from 1347 to 1558.

"Britain's oldest colony left the Empire (almost)"

Rubbish!
Ireland was one of the three kingdoms of James I of England, VI of Scotland (the others being England and Scotland — England including Wales at the time). He was king of Ireland, it was part of his realm, not a foreign colony. Ireland has never been a British colony.
Politically it was the Kingdom of Ireland under the British monarch until 1801, then part of the United Kingdom until 1922.

"Seems to me, that WWI was a major factor in bringing the Kaiser's colonialism to an end, "
World War one and The Easter Rising in Ireland (one brought about the other) that it brought about were the beginning of the end of Imperial system - a year late the Russian people walked away from the front and said enough was enough and four years after the war ended, Britain's oldest colony left the Empire (almost)
The rise of fascism in Germany was the death throes of the system of Empire

The original poster, I believe,
gave this thread the title that it has
in order to highlight the book of the same title.

I guess the thread title preface 'review' might have made things more specific,
but otherwise the focus was clear enough.
With or without the 'review' indicator,
the focus was to be on the book and the subject of the book.

The Guardian review copied by Joe Offer
does mention the title of another book,
and the book conforms to the subject of the original post.
That other book might be worth looking into.
I wonder if the ADEFRA activists know of the "die fighting" book.

The ADEFRA activists, and the survivors and victims for whom they advocate,
might be worth a thread of their very own.
There would be a lot of German, unfortunately,
as that is the language spoken by these activists.

I dare to hope that such a thread
might be an improvement over this one.

There were undoubtedly atrocities carried out in Belgium, to some of us, a war based on sending men agaist each other for five years to be slaughtered in the mud was the greatest atrocity of all
The deplorable fact that those atrocities were deliberately ed to facilitate a bigger one makes WW1 the killfest is was
This sums up how the propaganda was used to send so many millions more to their deaths

"Agreeing with the analysis of historian Susan Kingsley Kent, historian Nicoletta Gullace writes that "the invasion of Belgium, with its very real suffering, was nevertheless represented in a highly stylized way that dwelt on perverse sexual acts, lurid mutilations, and graphic accounts of child abuse of often dubious veracity." In Britain, many patriotic publicists propagated these stories on their own. For example, popular writer William Le Queux described the German army as "one vast gang of Jack-the-Rippers", and described in graphic detail events such as a governess hanged naked and mutilated, the bayoneting of a small baby, or the "screams of dying women", raped and "horribly mutilated" by German soldiers, accusing them of cutting off the hands, feet, or breasts of their victims."

EXCELLENT SUMMING UP HERE

The sickest thing of all was that the "Gallant Little Belgium" that was used to send so many millions to ther deaths has, not so long before, slaughtered ten million Congolese and cut the hands off countless numbers of others, in pursuit of rubber to make an Emperor wealthy
Ignoring an atrocity to bring about another atrocity, if ever there was one

People who present one as an atrocity and staunchly defend the other (as some have done here interminably) really do have no case

I regard both 'Genocide' and 'Massacre' as having specific meanings - both deliberate inhuman acts of mass murder

The dropping of two atomic weapons on two cities full of civilians I regard as 'mass murder' -massacres rather than genocide
I regard the slaughter of peasants by engulfing them in burning petrol massacres......
I regard mismanagement odf economic policies, or ruthless political policies as neither - they are neither genocide or mass murder, rather, they are comparable to wars (just or unjust) to achieve an aim
Both can be reprehensible, depending on their objective
It is noticeable that those who choose to misuse such terms refuse to discuss the objectives of any of these

I thank Raggytash for exposing this calamitous period of which I was unaware. I knew the Germans had colonies in Africa but I was sort of 'snowed' by the supposedly outstanding record of the German General von Lettow-Vorbeck who supposedly had the devotion of his African troops and of course after reading a few news articles or online blurbs I only had superficial knowledge. And when I write 'knowledge' I mean 'information'. Not the same thing.


And of course Jim Carroll has not for the first time displayed his utter condemnation of those evil colonizers while excusing, ignoring, giving a pass to, maybe even approving of depradations committed by those he regards as ideologically pure, maybe because a great deal of it was indigenous-on-indigenous genocide. Like Cambodia. It reminds me of a conversation I had in college when I was at lunch with my Chinese buddy and a student of Japanese origin. The Japanese student was going on about white colonization across Asia. I don't recall disagreeing with his citations, but then my Chinese friend said: "How about the Japanese takeover of Indonesia's colonies. Not much of a liberation for the local people, was it?"

"That's different! Those people didn't want to WORK!"

The exhibit was meant to demonstrate

As I said I knew nothing of the subject before attending a lecture this week. I had hoped we could enlighten ourselves about a period of history which I feel few, if any of us, knew anything about.

Not surprisingly the usual subjects do not want to learn anything new.

I shall read the book I purchased and the link Jim provided with interested.

Meanwhile back to the music in town.

Good luck with that.
