As always the entrance is free of charge, as a contribution to the Scientific Society & Museum we kindly ask for a donation.
The Scientific Society Swakopmund invites you to a presentation by Tshiva Trudie Amulungu and Wilfried Brock.
“We are both Namibians! But obviously from different Namibian backgrounds and experiences. If it were not for the liberation struggle for Namibia, we would certainly not have bumped into each other.
Did our different backgrounds and experiences prepare us to become full participants in the Namibian liberation struggle? Maybe not quite, but yet we both did!
What exactly was the liberation struggle all about, how did our generation come to embrace it and what were our personal experiences? And of course, what was our experience as a pioneer Namibian mixed couple?”
Wilfried Brock is currently the Executive Officer of the Roads Authority of Namibia. His spouse Tshiwa Trudie Amulungu was Head of the UNESCO office in Windhoek, then headed the Namibian mission to UNESCO in Paris before becoming Ambassador to Senegal. She is the author of the book “Taming my elephant”, an autobiography about the liberation struggle and life in exile, published in 2016.
