After I had finished the introduction, I must close disgusted the file.

In the mid-1940 years the natives could compare 30 years German, with
30 years British colonial period in GEA / Tanganjika and create the old saw:

"The Germans have harsh words, but a soft heart; - the British have soft words, but hard-hearted".

In diesem Sinne . . .
“Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. . . . All History was a
palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary” – G. ORWELL 1984
