The project aimed at creating a bibliography about the Maji-Maji Rebellion against German Colonial Rule in 1905 in Tanzania by providing ready access to a particular type of historical sources - articles published by contemporary observers in German newspapers and journals - which non-German speakers often have great difficulties to locate. The bibliography is in English.
