Wolf Böwig 2

lives in Hannover, Germany

"1+3
He knows how to drink water only with our mouth emdash like the dogs. He learned to do it after the RUF cut both his hands and he had to survive alone in the forest, for seven days, untill his wife found him leaning on a tree. The soldiers came from Kono and found me working in the farm. My children managed to escape but I was left behind and they got me along with six friends of mine. The six of them were killed on the spot. He was pushed to a fence, where the rebels held his arms over the wooden bars. When Cisse saw the machette going up, he cried: „Oh, God!!!“ They teased him: „Do you have a god?“ The machette came down twice.

Morie was five years old when RUF rebels killed his entire village, Bendu Malen, in the remote Pujehun district. Around 1200 persons were slaughtered from dawn to dusk in that rainy season in 1997, according to the Sierra Leone Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The boy is the only survivor of that massacre. They appointed Morie the chief of the village and they escorted him through the twelve hundred corpses so he could find his father, which he eventually did. „Daddy was beheaded and with his belly cut open“.
