Sinossi: 
From 1884 to 1914, a small belt of land between the British Gold Coast Colony and French-governed Dahomey was part of the German overseas empire in Africa. "Togoland", the later Togo and the eastern part of today's Ghana, experienced the first German capitulation in the early days of WWI. European rule left its marks on people's minds, even more than a century after the forced pull-out of one of the major European players in the competitive "great colonial game" and more than half a century after the African Independences. Lomé - Adibo - Yendi - Kamina - Wahala: present-day glimpses of a journey into the past.
