“About two weeks after the surrender of the German Colonial Troops at Khorab on 9 July 1915, 797 German prisoners of war were brought by train from Otavi to Aus”. This is a revised edition of the book first published in 1985; it includes a comprehensive list of both the graves of prisoners of war and their South African captors, who perished at Aus. It also provides information on other prisoner of war camps in the former South West Africa, as well as on the deportation of Germans from the territory.
