BERLIN, STADTMITTE, GERMANY, Sept. 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — This year’s memorial (Walk Of Death) will take place over five days at five (5) different locations: Südafrikanischen Botschaft, Großbritannien Botschaft, Botschaft Frankreich, Italian Botschaft and the Deutsche Bundestag Platz der 1.
It is a hidden story that deserves long or lasting memories. Walk of Death is one of the horrors of world wars and crimes of colonialism that white historians have never written into world history books for the past 79 years. It happened on October 28, 1943, when Afrakan colonial soldiers were captured as prisoners of war by German troops on June 21, 1942 in Tobruk, Libya. Benjamin Satiba Makgate/BMT4379/N4379 was born on 01.01.1906 in Boomplaas, Lydenburg, in the province of Mpumalanga in South Africa. He was part of the 2nd Division of Black/Afrakan South African soldiers who were drafted to join the Allied forces. In his diary, he meticulously recorded the hardships of the war and how Afrakan colonial soldiers survived the holocaust as prisoners of war in the Frontstalags/concentration camps numbers 133, 153, 171 and 221 in Europe ( Germany, France and Italy) where he remained after his capture until the end of the war.
Matilda TheeGreat, the author of Foreign me, is the granddaughter of Benjamin Satiba Makgate who came to Europe to rediscover the truth written in his diary. She invades the days of her grandfather. Instead, she found an intentional erasure of the existence of her grandfather’s division from the story. So it became his mission to demand the memorial that his grandfather and his comrades in arms deserve.
In 2020, Matilda organized a march in their memory from Alexandra Platz to the British War Cemetery in Berlin.
Afrakan poetry, rap, music and rituals have conveyed the message that these hardships have not been forgotten.
In 2021 a silent protest was held with chairs representing both the white and Afrakan soldiers (with different colors that showed Afrakans who were forgotten, erased and mostly without graves with red resembling the blood of innocent men: Black, White, and Red.) placed outside the government building to highlight their common struggle but unequal memory.
This year is our third annual commemorative event in which we will unify them spiritually by taking their souls to the resting place in Afraka. It will be in a peaceful way that their claims to a sacred monument in Europe will be exhibited.
The Afrakans liberated Europe from fascism and the world should recognize their great #seetsa deeds.
