Thursday 12th September 2013

7:00pm, Room B102, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG - Public lecture (all welcome)

Drawing on interviews with surviving veterans, the story of the Patriots, long suppressed during the Derg era, will be related. Their long lonely struggle is testament to their courage, determination, faith and national pride. Ultimately, in concert with the Allied forces, they played a significant part in the liberation of the country and the restoration of Haile Selassie to the throne.
