The Addis Ababa Massacre

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the immediate aftermath of the three-day massacre, including the efforts by the French and American envoys, Albert Bodard and Cornelius Van Engert, to manage the deteriorating security situation in the city. Detailed accounts are provided of life in the temporary detention camps and prisons of Addis Ababa, which were filled to overflowing, and which were the scene of many deaths from hunger, thirst and ill-treatment. The chapter also explains how the Patriot movement in the rural areas was swollen by the arrival of Ethiopians fleeing the massacre in Addis Ababa.
