Germany to return 18 Aborigine skulls to Australia

By Patrick McGroarty
Berlin, Germany (AP)

A German medical museum will return the skulls of 18 Australian Aborigines that were taken from the continent more than a century ago.

The skulls – part of a sprawling and poorly documented anthropological collection – have been at the Medical History Museum at Berlin’s Charite hospital and medical school.

The collection is among a dozen in Germany and many more in Europe where Australian diplomats have asked curators to repatriate Aboriginal remains. Yet Charite is the first German institution to commit to repatriation and talks with the caretakers of 11 other collections are ongoing, according to Ian Kemish, Australia’s ambassador to Germany.
