Based on both Ethiopian and foreign sources, this chapter describes how, after the attack on Graziani, the Italian military cordoned off a circle of radius approximately 360 meters around the perimeter of the Gennete Liul Palace and killed many of the Ethiopians within that area between noon and 1 pm on Friday 19th February. The account includes important testimony by the American, British and French envoys, and from several eye witnesses including Sara Gebre Iyyesus and Temesgen Gebre.
