Photographer's Note

When I visited the town this building hadn't been inaugurated yet and I hadn't any idea what it was until I see an image at Rosemary's gallery.
If I understood well this building is a museun paying homage to independence heroes from Namibia and it was build in a place of a former concentration camp.
There is a big contrast of this building and the colonial monuments around, not visible here.

Quando visitei esta cidade este edifício ainda não havia sido inaugurado e eu não sabia do que se tratava até ler a nota e ver a foto de minha amiga Rosemary, quando soube que se tratava do museu da independência. Se entendi direito ele se localiza no local onde antes havia um campo de concentração. O edifício moderno faz um grande contraste com os edifícios coloniais ao redor, não visíveis aqui.
