strutting down the paris catwalks to see all the latest autumn winter fashion trends. in recent years there's been lots of talk about former colonial powers returning cultural gems mostly taken from africa that were looted in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century in germany's case we're talking about thousands of objects currently in german museums that were mostly taken from namibia which was a german colony until 915 the namibians want what they rightly consider is returned this week germany has created a central office to deal with the restitution of such cultural abbots assets not only for the maybe but it is then that the wounds of the colonial rule of the deepest. the german colonial era has left deep scars in namibia artifacts from that country are still held in german newseum including the remains
of people who had been brutally dehumanised. the remains of people into objects through the boiling of corpses down to bone at the side of the grave of the stuffing of the corpse into a battle of salt in the history of museum collecting indigenous people. are turned into objects through serialization and classification. the pain left by this violence is omnipresent in many african cultures people's ancestors live on and that means their remains do as well because in the back is complicated there are 7000 museums in germany and most of the exhibits from the colonial era have no documentation to even extend view museums have the federal government sitting at the table with it's usually museums where the federal states are involved so there isn't one single national museum as there often are in african countries but rather
a greater diversity of museums unified while restitution of human remains is moving ahead things are going more slowly with actual logical examines african experts are outraged by european suggestions that the continent lacks proper museums to display those objects there are some things that supposed to die there are some things that are holding us spiritually there are some things that really were created not to live and we had museum eyes them and we have kept them posted yes and some communities i think give us bark so that they can go to that we can have peace because we're having problems if you do we need to be colonized and it is our problem if we want them to keep them in the forest or what would be good but of them it is all. the german. military stole a bible and a whip from henrik with him maybe as national hero there restitution lyndon museum in early 2900 sparked the debate over whether exhibits are absolutely necessary to
define a museum. that is what we think that it's important we give to our children for the future so it's a so is it up to it or is that story than in a museum doesn't have the bible and the whip but it has an incredible amount of stories of controversy. that does a lot about how human beings who are. museum conversations are deliberately being held without politicians in an intimate tent and university landscape in a township of into. the great institute has created a strong network of experts which will be faced challenging damask. just questionable and we're talking about countries with different tribes in numbers there are 30 or 40 things that other countries have 50 or 60 different tribes living together people who belong together who have a common language and culture so i see a big role for museums to play in africa more actively supervising this combining
a kind of nation not mustapha but like. the museum conversations are a laboratory of exchange amid an emotional minefield they've not yet come up with answers to the big questions of restitution but they have resulted in improved mutual understanding and trust and there will be further conversations. frank is host of the biggest sport fair in the world at the moment and one of the biggest topics being talked about around the world right now is climate change so this is naturally the topic of the book fair to. climate fiction is booming melting glaciers and rising sea levels a great plot material for novelists but with extreme weather affecting us all it's also a topic for nonfiction authors writing about the dangers the world is facing. increasingly
writers are addressing the climate crisis a new book by bestselling author jonathan so from floor is titled we are the weather saving the planet begins at breakfast it's an appeal to all of us to change or eating habits. it doesn't always look or feel big often looks and feels quite modest. i'm going to have oatmeal or so i know in my coffee instead of cow's milk all right that doesn't work well on a bumper sticker or a t. shirt nobody you know raise the fist to the sky and says oh no but if we all did it if we all made changes just like that. we would save the planet. along with nonfiction books there's also a growing genre of what's called climate fiction that includes the novel the history of b.s. by norwegian writer my in london it's starting point is the startling decline in global b populations. and she's just published the 3rd book in
her climate quartet which is about the survival of a rare horsemeat and about taking responsibility for both humans and nature. earlier we understood on the. objective level that we should change the way we live because our planet meet needs it but now we start to understand more deeply and i think it novel scruby a way to get that understanding at least that's what the readers tell me. the topic of the climate has never before been so prominent at the book fairs german language section especially in the form of nonfiction and self-help books revenues for books on the topic have risen 10 percent this year the demand for information seems endless the book fair has responded with panel discussions on the relationship between man and nature the climate. crisis is definitely helping to sell books. and publishing houses are trying to do their bit by improving
sustainability. some have done away with plastic packaging and the heights and publishing group has resolved to reduce its c o 2 footprint. option and it was by far the greatest problem is the paper producing it consumes lots of energy and that makes up 70 percent of our series to footprint and face another part comes from transporting the paper of the books of the future together that's amounts to another 20 percent and we also consider the ciro to output of our business trips and our employees commutes to. have ties and. the company is showing the way forward for the industry and taking a big step toward greater environmental responsibility. a smaller publisher meanwhile has gone completely climate friendly with notebooks made of grass paper that's fully compostable environmental awareness has arrived in the world of books and
