The Addis Ababa Massacre

Ian Campbell

Oxford University Press

Using Italian and Ethiopian sources, the author describes the attempt by members of the urban resistance on the life of Viceroy Rodolfo Graziani at the Gennete Liul Palace on Friday 19th February 1937. Grenades thrown at Graziani and his entourage injured him and resulted in his evacuation to hospital. Meanwhile Italian military and civilians attacked and eventually slaughtered the crowd of 3,000 Ethiopians in the palace courtyard.
