The article recalls the time when people living in Europe sought asylum in Africa. Throughout the 1930s, as Germany came under the rule of Adolf Hitler, thousands of European Jews attempted to gain admission into Great Britain's African territories. France's African soldiers stationed in Rhineland fathered several Afro-German children, referred to as the "Rhineland bastards." In 1931, a German woman residing in Rhineland requested a Rhenish Mission to find a home for her African son in South Africa. The son was ostracized not only because of his race, but also because he was a reminder of the French occupation.
