World is Witness, a project of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, has featured a powerful story on the Lord Resistance Army’s (LRA) attacks in Congo.
Here’s an excerpt from the story of Marie, a teenage girl who was captured by the LRA during its attacks on Faradje, Congo:
I was at home with my family when I saw them. I ran with the others, but the LRA caught up and hit me in the head with the butt of a rifle. I was taken to the market and tied up with at least a hundred others. We saw them killing people in front of us with machetes and clubs, one by one.
