Namibia's "lost" generation. During the liberation struggle they grew  up in the GDR. They were sent there by the SWAPO to be educated and trained as future Namibian leaders. Today these young Africans  try to find their own identity in independent Namibia - torn between two worlds, two cultures. Are they Germans or Namibians, Europeans or Africans?
