Sub-Committee on Research & Publication
What We Do
Led by a Chairperson reporting directly to the OGF Chairperson and working directly with that Office and all its support wings, this sub-committee shall endeavor to produce scholarly and quality academic and educational materials on various thematic areas of the OvaHerero Genocide experience. Amongst these thematic areas are:
- dedicate time and resources to researching and publishing, with specific historicity, stolen Herero land, immovable assets and livestock and work towards filing such claims with appropriate points of authority and execution.
- dedicate time and resources to researching and publishing, with specific historicity, stolen Herero Human Remains, Artwork, cultural artifacts and other materials of general significance and work towards filing such claims at appropriate points of authority and execution.
- dedicate time and resources to research, analysis and publication of the full impact of genocide on the psyche, health and wellness of the Herero community in broad terms but, to the extent possible, with specificity bring to the fore experiences of individual OvaHereros, past and living. Under this thematic area, the research focus shall include, but not limited to, the aspect of pervasive alien chronic genetic diseases and other human defects which largely took hold amongst Ovaharero as a consequence of war crimes of sexual assault and resultant interracial off-springs born with health conditions otherwise alien to the black race. Necessarily, this research work must embody recommendations on how to address, remedy the findings in the studies undertaken.
dedicate time and resources to researching for purposes of recreating and bringing to light genocide history through remembrance and or commemorative activities, materials and documentations. Where possible and appropriate, endeavor to identify significant individuals and or figures and sites in genocide history whose work, influence and meaning could be turned into a rallying post for the genocide movement and thus deserves permanent marking with monuments or structures of similar meaning and value.
