The Germans in Samoa: Snapshots from Albums

Photo Credits

The Germans in Samoa 2 - revised friday 1309


This exhibition has been made possible by the generosity of many families who have allowed parts of their photo collections, those dealing with Samoa in the colonial era, to be researched, copied and archived by the Museum of Samoa.

Working with photos sourced from albums and collections in Auckland, Australia and Germany, Tony Brunt has grouped the images obtained into a number of themes and stories. The first offering in this series focuses on the German experience in Samoa.
