The First Genocide of the 20th Century

Germany's colonial rule of what became modern Namibia was not only responsible for killing 10,000 Nama (a subgroup of Khoi people), it was also responsible for the deaths of thousands of Herero people (part of the Bantu group).

Germany has only recently (2004) apologized for this massacre, but it is doubtful that monetary compensation is forthcoming.
