    This posting is right. Hitler killed or caused to be killed more than 10 MILLION AFRICAN males. One of them was my uncle. Germans were grabbing all healthy young Africans from my tribe. At one time my grandmother told me one of my uncles had been grabbed by Germans to fight a war. But I was too young to appreciate what she was talking about. But one day I remember, there was a funeral at my grand-parents. We went there but there was nobody dead to bury. My other uncle, young to the one snatched by German, told me he had a very healthy brother who had snatched by Germans; but never returned home. So they were having his funeral although without a body. Now that you raised the issue; this hits me hard. I will try to follow up this story.

      Can you please keep me posted as to what you discover. As a Black woman, I understand our oral history and traditions are rich and I would like to share stories like your in the community for youth to learn from.

      This article is about King Leopold II of Belgium, not about Hitler. He is described as “Hitler-like” and he definitely was but this article is about the atrocities done by the Belgians. Hitler came to power decades after Leopold II died.

    Sure, I will do that. Actually give me about three months from now. I am planning to visit England and Germany. I will keep posted what I find. By other way, I have a very rich African history.

    I went to a museum in Brussels about three years ago while visiting and found a bit of this information and it struck me so hard i can never forget. I saw pictures of Africans carrying Belgians in caravans and many others with Africans having their limbs chopped off for not meeting their goals of the quantity of gold or rubber they were required to produce. Leopold actually build the city of Brussels from the fortune he amassed out of the Congo. Many of the cities of Europe were build from the wealth they garnered from Africa. Especially Brussels and London.
