Flag of the German Colonial Empire
Togo land 1885

Togoland was a protectorate in West Africa from the German Colonial Empire of from 1884 to 1914, encompassing what is now the nation of Togo and most of what is now the Volta Region of Ghana. During the period known as the "Scramble for Africa", the colony was established in 1884 and was gradually extended inland.


  • The oral history of the German occupation, to my initial surprise, indirectly supports the model colony thesis emphasizing what oral historians describe as the "honesty," "order," and "discipline" of the German era. Oral history is shaped by the economic and political realities of its present, and thus, as it transforms over time, is a reflection of the specific era in which it is produced.
