Sample text

The Unknown Famine reached a domestic television audience at the Ethiopian New Year in September 1974, ten months after its international screenings. Retitled The Hidden Hunger, it was utilized by the coup plotters as the final propaganda blow against the emperor. Ethiopian television cleared its New Year schedules to screen and rescreen the film. As if the pictures of starvation were not instructive enough, the film was re-edited in Addis Ababa to incorporate pictures of a lavish court wedding for which the cake had been flown from Italy.

He described the adoption of the one million figure as ‘a trivialisation and dehumanisation of human misery’ and concluded from his own researches that a minimum of 400,000 died in the famine.

The burden of his study was that the government of Colonel Mengistu killed them.
