Child No. 95

An Almost Unknown Chapter of History

LUCIA ENGOMBE: Child No 95 My German-African Odyssey When I was seven years old, a white man asked me, “Would you like to fly to Germany with me?” I did not know what Germany was. I knew nothing but the African bush where I lived. But I wanted to leave, because I starved in the refugee camp. For almost 11 years I lived in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR); originally I even stayed in a manor. At 17, almost as suddenly as I had been catapulted from the bush to Europe, I had to return to Africa. My mother saw the 'German' in me who could not even cook pap, the national dish. I remained a stranger to her while I fought for her love. (Originally published in German as “Kind Nr. 95” by Ullstein Verlag, Berlin) Special features of this book: The post-colonial history of Namibia and Germany, Maps where Lucia lived in Africa and Germany “The book by Namibian author Lucia Engombe about her years as 'Child No. 95' in the GDR has shed a new light on this almost forgotten chapter of German-Namibian relations.“ Horst Köhler as President of the Federal Republic of Germany “Lucia Engombe`s memories are detailed, quite personal and honest … Without self-pity, but with almost clinical precision, the author recounts her observations.” Insight Namibia, Windhoek “Extraordinary and gripping” Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Germany “Lucia's life story – a path of suffering” Der Spiegel, Germany “A fascinating historical account that fills the gap in the story of the GDR kids published thus far: the detailed retelling of a very personal fate that mirrored that of others, but was nonetheless so deeply distressing in its uniqueness. Related with a quiet sense of humour and successful arc of tension” Allgemeine Zeitung, Namibia “Lucia Engombe succeeded in creating a fascinating, autobiographical report” Goethe Institute, South Africa LUCIA PANDULENI ENGOMBE was born on 13 October 1972 in Oshakati, northern Namibia.
