Why doesn't anyone ever talk about the 2nd Reich?

Everyone remembers the Holocaust but nobody remembers the 2nd Reich and their atrocities in German Southwest Africa. Why is that?

Because most people's understanding of WWII are: Germany was bad, World was losing to Germany, Germany teamed up with Italy and Japan, after pearl harbor USA stepped in and we stomped them. Most people aren't really interested in what happened throughout the war except directly regarding their country and the country they are at war with.

One reason, im sure, is that the German Empires behavior in its colonies was no worse or different than any other Empire of the same time. Britains atrocities and bad behavior in India are well documented. Ditto for other countries.
