The institution was founded in 1898 and was unique in Germany. Witzenhausen served to prepare students for life in the colonies.
Based on historical documents, the authors create different text-image combinations in the form of a fictional narrative. Through stories, drawings, interviews, comics and photos, the book takes a critical look at a previously unknown and momentous chapter of German colonial history.
