Description [ correction ]

The grave of Leutnant Thilo von Trotha is located in the Fish River Canyon. He was born on 23 November 1877 in Wahlstadt and died on the 14 June 1905 in the Canyon. He was killed while negotiating peace with the Bondelswarts-Nama. He was shot in the back because he was suspected to be a distraction from the raid being carried out by the German Calvary in the valley below the Four Finger Rock to recover stolen livestock.
