Cartoon by Behrendt on decolonisation (November 1959)

‘The white man, then what?' For the German cartoonist, Behrendt, the end of 1959 experiences a strong wave of decolonisation in Africa. Increasing numbers of Africans countries gain their independence and, in so doing, bring about an end of the absolute supremacy of European powers in the world.
