The Durban Conference in 2011 brought international attention to the question of the descendants of victims of slavery and colonialism were entitled to reparations. Shortly after the Durban Conference several cases were filed in the USA by amongst other The Herero People Reparation Corporation claiming reparations from the German State for the Genocide on the Herero-people in 1904-07. These types of cases raise a host of complex questions – amongst others the question of when a historical injustice is too old to be subject for reparations. But as this paper explores the answer to this question depends not only on law but also the dominating politics of history, political will, and historical consciousness.
