Photos as historical witnesses

Dejjazmach Meshesha Werqé, le premier ambassadeur éthiopien en Allemagne, 1907.

“This volume presents historical images and texts documenting the history of German-Ethiopian relations, as a result of many years of research. Some of the material was unknown to historians so far and captures crucial historical moments. Ethiopians travelled to Germany at a surprisingly early time, such as Abba Gorgoryos, the co-founder of Ethiopian Studies in Germany, residing in Gotha in 1652, or former Oromo slaves in the early 19th century. Germans also migrated to Ethiopia, whose Ethiopian-German descendents played sometimes an important role in cultural exchange, politics and diplomacy over generations.”

With an introduction by Richard Pankhurst.
