Namibia`s history was characterised by colonisation an apartheid during the years 1884 to 1990. Today, young people from different cultural backgrounds an ethnic groups come together at the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS) in Windhoek. However, for reasons such as tuition in different languages they still apart very often.

Starting from the studies of a History Club, many questions arose among the participants, all of them belonging to the English Medium Branch. The interest to learn more about their country`s history revealed the need to get to know about the history of "the others" – the German speaking school mates. A project was initiated that enabled the pupils to explore and tell their own family history and to listen to the others`stories.

Presenting some of their contributions, this book shows the eagerness and fun the pupils had in this project as well as an increasing awareness of history. Moreover it demonstrates ways of starting a dialogue to overcome barriers.
