your, for your visit? we informed her nicole young through newly off and who was isab. sheila also newman for why so low alpha mit amen. don't seem to suit reporter news top. oscar sees it there by law. boy, imagine it is on this volume. see our secretary to route. so you pick one place, walk ah, microns bolt promised to send african artifacts home has put other european countries on. notice. mike france, germany museums, hold tens of thousands of objects from africa. but unlike in france, there's a lively debate here about the countries colonial record. in downtown berlin, activist and academic joshua kweisi wants to show me how traces of germany's colonial past still linger in the city. there is a site where the german chancellor bismark invited all the other european from your
8:47 am
powers, and the u. s. and the ottoman empire to come and discuss the carving up of the african continent. the meetings began here in 1884. there were no representatives from the african continent. there was nobody actually from the territories that were carved up. european nations competed with each other to grab land and resources. and so john colonies were and what us today target, which includes what is today gonna come rule out what will then call germans south africa to de la libya. all of these places experienced brutal german crony rule. germany's time as a colonial power was short, really 40 years later, it was forced to hand over its territories to the victors of world war one. but artifacts collected during that time, still fillets, museums. joshua wants them dealt with in the same way as the art stolen by the
8:48 am
nazis. all we demand is that inside germany gained from that part of its history, need to be extended to include the dealings with colonial history and looted art of that era. and is simply wrong that his objects are there with, i'm heading to hand to say some sculptures that have become the symbol of looted colonial lot. many african artifacts arrived in the port of hamburg in the 19th century. among them were some benign bronzes. these are sculptures and carvings looted by the british in 1897 after a bloody war and benign city in present day nigeria was quite an incredible building. yeah. for a sam open the 1912. okay. and you have been aim bronzes here as well?
8:49 am
yes, we have quite an interesting collection of about 170 pieces. doctor barbara plank and steiner is a world expert on the benign bronzes. oh wow. yeah, this is her conservation. all this new took them 3 of our works our for inspection . so this is one of these are, yes, blacks are very characteristic for the meaning growing. aren't they tell a lot about the history and the sooner ceremonial culture a, the statues on actually all bronze, some are made of iron brass and ivory. so this is, i'm assuming one piece of ivory that's been carved. yes, and it's like actually a stuffed up is, has been used in certain ceremonies where with a little ivory stick, he would knock on it. the intricate sculptures documented court life for over 500 years hanging on palace walls. and so this hybrid had re date into the 19th
8:50 am
century. there is in lay and b, i is the pupils are in late this ira. i am, you know, iron is a very powerful material. the sheer number and quality of the work is, are exceptional. there might be about 5000 works in most prominent museum. all in these, the national campaign for the return of the benign bronzes to nigeria has been gathering pace and it's causing big headaches for germany's newest and most expensive cultural project. the humboldt form in berlin was still under construction when we visited it's collection of non european art in artifacts. is one of the richest in the world in the years, it's taken to build this massive museum. controversy has raged over what to do with
8:51 am
its colonial collection. herman, passing a heads one of the foundations which manages the humboldt until very few years ago . the colonial history of germany was not for the tram and population for so really an issue wasn't really a problem. and of course the situation changed. we have much more people from africa living in germany, the immigrants and so on, so they cannot anymore ignore this. the humboldt forum has the 2nd largest collection of benign bronzes after the british museum over $500.00 objects. the museum has been under immense public pressure not to display them. you plan to exhibit some of the benign bronzes i hear how do you do that ethically knowing that that these objects were learned? both these objects are going to be exposed to story behind, to subtracts, will be told, the launching and everything. it's important that we have not
8:52 am
a lacuna, an empty space here on, on, on benin or, or leaving benin completely and putting a complete other topic from our collections into scullery. recently the german government said it wants to return a number of bronzes to nigeria, but things should go back, but how many things go back and which things go back and which things can be shown here in the humbled form and in other places. i think this has to be solved in a dialogue with responsible persons in nigeria. i think this is the important thing which we have to solve. ah, we call it restrictions easy. europe's museums are opening up and was all the bombs are, is on the mode. we track him down in portugal where he is being followed by another meeting with
8:53 am
a little bit more blue dollars were valuable to got. did it for me, or did i did? not with his live streaming, his every move is vicky dipped, he doesn't look a what you call began colonizing parts of africa as early as the 1400s. one of the 1st european countries deter, sorry, was olu and his colleagues want to remind people of that history with his 1st target is the museum of ethnology, which holds many african objects. mozilla is looking for objects taken during those early days of portugal. colonization look almost only tough i today not that come on to me, cuts off on me restock and he finds these pot leads from angola,
8:54 am
but they're not very old. then he can't get at them as you get out of the museum buffy p. s to laugh if you really are due to p s. u, so about maybe some form or the pin number on said he saw the place to focus on. but he took. ready ways booth, fuzzy mall upon the button of economists of asking for jimmy the monday of a little that was from it, beth allen, and he thought it dessler. and so his son and his elbow, c o c, and good luck with those bullshit. then it bill is on 40, was all it leaves empty handed, but his local network has another plan that will adopt will deliver this is actually with his next target is the national museum of antique garage. it has an exhibition with 16th century african objects
8:55 am
but again, he has no luck. well yes, it should be a good sort of a lead loan with a release. he's growing media profile is working against it. he believes museum staff refused him entry because they recognized him alerted the next day he makes one final attempt. oh the fellow he's giving up. for now
8:56 am
it's going to measure also to to thought it causes your auto policy as well. console know if he's eligible to shows a bela we said it was okay with light last year, 3 years after background to pledge francis parliament passed a law to return $27.00 objects to africa. 26. back to the nation of benito. among these objects looted from romeo was ancestor, oh, i think it's a very sorry, cold moment for french because the 1st time so many objects will be given back. not the hand of something. that's the beginning of something new. france has no immediate plans to return other african objects, but says it supports long term cooperation with african countries on returns. if
8:57 am
it's the 1st step, it's historical. it's very important. it's most symbolical thing you can do. if it's the only step, well, it's $27.00 object. you know, it's not. but i think we'll need 10 to 20 years to understand if this was an absolute revolution, or if it was just a speech 717 me from the return of the throne. his ancestors, once sat on and other items is long overdue. so the 2nd call is awful enough to know it based on he's all up engine on normal, a horizontal roof. i think we have fun to do anything re select from the bus that got sent to la fontose. ah, africa. when take no point in africa to hong look. what do you handle
8:58 am
fettered the percentage that i did on the homeless? it was on the the manual mach balls, leadership of france has been beset with turmoil and parties on politics. now, as the president seats, a new term and office the far right has become his biggest electric challenge with what will its hard line rhetoric be overshadowed by international event? people empower, investigates, frances, fearful campaign on a just either the latest news. as it breaks the russians will met with fear
