Would that be the Western Samoan Nazi Party?

They do appear to have possibly been the most harmless Nazis in the world!

Thank you Waldzee, your clues helped a lot. You're right Solf was an enlightened politician. My question would be, what was unusual about Solf's widow's tea parties?

That would be Hauptmann von Raben at Mora in February. Or is that a trick question?

Ok.

Who am I?

I was born in Nuremberg on November 27th 1875 and died on Kabakon (formerly German New Guinea) May 6th 1919. I spent 18 years on Kabakon and during that time I wore no clothes and ate nothing but coconuts.
