Africa LLM/MSc Tercentenary Scholarship

Edinburgh Law School is delighted to announce the launch of the Africa LLM/MSc Tercentenary Scholarship, a new series of scholarships for African students applying for the LLM in Law, the LLMs in Commercial, European, Innovation or International Law, or the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice. One scholarship will be available each academic year until 2013/2014. The award is open to all suitably qualified African applicants; however, the 2010/2011 scholarship is particularly aimed at applicants who are citizens of (and normally resident in) Angola, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. If no suitable application is received from these countries, the scholarship will pass to the next most suitable applicant. The award will be made solely on academic merit.

The scholarship will cover the costs of postgraduate tuition fees for one academic year. The successful applicant will also be given a partial maintenance grant to help fund their studies at the University of Edinburgh. The maintenance grant will not cover the full costs of studying at the university and applicants should ensure they have sufficient financial support to complete their studies. More detailed information can be obtained by emailing [email protected].

The closing date for the receipt of applications for 2010-2011 will be 31 May 2010. Applicants must send an email to [email protected] indicating that they wish to apply for the scholarship. Applications for postgraduate programmes must be made in parallel through the normal University application route.

Video: Parliamentary fights

I so love these unorganized, uncoordinated and unstructured fights that all of a sudden turns out to be an entertainment. But really, who cares which country these politicians come from? From all I hear, read and see, they just look like they are all of the same breed only with different manipulating talents - after all, they are human beings and so are we.

History: Mahjub Bin Adam (Tanzanian) 1st African to be given a memorial in German after holocaust

It is sometimes good to learn history as you become aware of the past. For example, I never knew that there was a Tanzanian killed in the German concentration camps during the 1904-1944 holocaust. His name was Mahjub Bin Adam Mohamed. His pictures that are seen here were obtained from the and his story is as quoted below from cyberNomadsAFROTAK.
This event took place in

Mahjub Bin Adam Mohamed will make history in Germany by becoming the first black person to be given a memorial in his adopted country as an individual victim of the genocide of the Third Reich. A Stolperstein - a bronze 'stumbling block' - will be erected on the ground outside the house in Berlin where he lived.

The memorial will be placed so that pedestrians have to step around it, and its aim is to stop future generations from thinking of the Holocaust in terms of anonymous, faceless numbers. Until now the markers have been almost exclusively established at Jewish homes, but bin Adam's Stolperstein will serve as a reminder of other minorities, the black people, the disabled, homosexuals, gypsies, communists, political dissenters and Jehovah's Witnesses, who were also murdered under Hitler's regime.

The Stolperstein is a project conceived by Cologne-based artist Gunter Demnig. He plans to create a total of 12,000 markers outside houses, giving the name of the person or persons who lived there and the date on which they were taken to a concentration camp. Munich is the only city to have so far refused to have the markers, saying that they would encourage anti-Semitism.

bin Adam, who was born in Tanzania, joined the then colonial German East Africa services when he was 10 years old and served with the army. He emigrated to Berlin in 1929, where he immediately got into trouble with the authorities by walking into the Foreign Ministry and demanding his outstanding service pay.

Although his request was refused, he decided to stay, working as a waiter in hotels and taking small parts in films. He had roles in more than 20 movies with stars such as Zarah Leander, Hans Albers and Willy Birgel, even after the war broke out. He also taught Swahili at the Oriental Workshop.

He married a German woman, Maria Schwander, and they had three children - Adam, Annemarie and Bodo - but his family struggled to make ends meet because of his excesses, which included numerous affairs that resulted in several illegitimate children. He was still in dispute with the authorities over money for his time in the armed forces when he was arrested in 1941, charged with the crime of 'miscegenation' - racial intermarriage - and taken to Sachsenhausen concentration camp, where he died in November 1944.

The plaque, which will stand outside his former home on Brunnenstrasse in Berlin's Mitte district, comes with the release of a book about him, Truthful Till Death, by Marianne Bechhaus-Gerst. The book focuses attention on the persecution of black people under the Third Reich, which included forced sterilisation and, ultimately, extermination.
By the start of the 20th century, Germany had extensive colonies in Africa and it is often claimed that German doctors carried out genetic experiments on East Africans. After the First World War, France occupied the German Rhineland, deploying colonial African soldiers as the occupying force. The result was hundreds of children born to German women by African soldiers who then became a target for Hitler. In Mein Kampf, he referred to them as 'Rhineland Bastards'.

By 1937, every identified mixed-race child in the Rhineland had been forcibly sterilised, often without anaesthetic. By the outbreak of war most black people had fled. The few who remained were exterminated.
