Daan Botes 31/7/2012 Die Geschichte von Ameib" by Hannah Schreckenbach (1st edition 2009, ISBN: 978-3-936858-97-6). 1867 the German missionary Johannes Friedrich Albrecht Boehm from the Rheinischen Mission built a station here. If it rains well, Ameib is a paradise, is there no rain, it becomes hell. That the missioner must have also recognized. Permanent military conflicts of the native tribes, and years of drought in 1881 forced Böhm to abandon the property, it decayed. 1907, Karl Hentschel, the first Farmer to take over Ameib. 1913 the lawyer Dr. Otto Sievert from Swakopmund acquires the farm (his grave is near the farm house). Already in 1909/10, in the northwest part of the farm tin mining started on small scale, but only after the occupation of the country by the Union of South Africa in the First World War, Sievert, intensified the mining. To meet the high water supplies to the mine, a dam of almost 200 000 cubic meters was built. Towards the end of the Second World War, the tin ore was exhausted; the silted dam and ruins of the wash plant still exist. Some graves bear witness of the hard work here at the edge of the desert.
