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.
Niemeyer's resulting work, "Africa: The Holocausts of Rwanda and Sudan" (New Mexico, $50), portrays the aftermath of the savagery with stunning images and stark prose.
Four types of holocausts are presented: tribe-on-tribe genocide ("Rwandan Refugees"); slavery ("The Sudan Slave Story"); religious jihad genocide ("Sudan Oil Field Genocide"); and ethnic cleansing ("Nuba Mountains, Sudan"). Over 180 color photographs document these atrocities.
