Africa: The Holocausts of Rwanda and Sudan
by Lucian Niemeyer
Publisher's Description
'Africa is a magnificent and diverse continent full of majesty and mystery. Unfortunately, recent waves of genocide have also spread misery to millions of Africans. In these pages Lucian Niemeyer has bravely and sensitively documented the horror and cruelty of the genocides of Rwanda and Sudan.'-from the foreword by Bill Richardson

In 1994, internationally known author and photographer Lucian Niemeyer began a series of journeys to Africa to document and expose atrocities being committed there. Niemeyer traveled to the Rwandan refugee camps in Zaire a few months after the terrible Hutu-on-Tutsi genocide. Subsequent trips to the Sudan were made to document slavery, the oil field genocide, and the Nuba Mountain epoch. Four main types of holocausts are presented in these stories: tribe-on-tribe genocide ('Rwandan Refugees'), slavery ('The Sudan Slave Story'), religious Jihad genocide ('Sudan Oil Field Genocide'), and ethnic cleansing ('Nuba Mountains, Sudan').
