The Herero material came to Seyfried's attention while he was travelling in Namibia for the Goethe-Institut. He spent several years researching the lives of indigenous people and Germans in the colonies. Seyfried's "Herero", a tale of German settlers and generals and rebellious Hereros on the African plains, is set against the background of one of the darkest chapters of Germany's colonial past.
