The Germans in Samoa: Snapshots from Albums


The Germans in Samoa 44


On Sundays some internees would head out to hunt for rabbits. Fatu watches while a group try to dig some rabbits out of a burrow. Fatu was a fluent speaker of German, as well as Samoan and English, and was something of a comic. He could draw a laugh easily from a group.

People (left-to-right): Fatu; Holzeit; man standing unknown; H.Cassebaum looking back; man with beret Hans Korner (?); probably Arthur Gardain with spade; Karl Bunge (ex DH & PG, Apia).
