Editor's Note: God Bless the souls of those Ethiopians who perished under the so-called "Red" & "White" Terror. To my understanding the advantage of building such a memorial center is to remember those Ethiopians who were massacred and also to pause and learn from our reprehensible history. However, as witnessed here building a memorial center only for victims of “Red Terror” doesn’t accomplish the objective! What about those Ethiopians who were massacred by misguided EPRP policy under the so-called “White Terror”? Those individuals who were murdered cold-handed were also Ethiopians. Are we going to build another memorial center for them? It would have been inclusive & impartial if it were intended for all Ethiopians who were slaughtered under the so-called “White” and “red” Terror!   (Ben) 

 

Ethiopia honour victims of Mengistu purge (IOL) - Addis Ababa - Ethiopia inaugurated a museum on Sunday in memory of the victims of former dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam's so-called Red Terror purge which killed tens of thousands in the 1970s. Dozens of family members and government officials attended a sombre ceremony at the memorial in Addis Ababa to remember their loved ones, whose bodies were mostly dumped in mass graves.

Message to Ben (By: Solomon)

Dear Ben, I read your opinion on your page about the “Red Terror” memorial! Yes there were killings by everybody. EPRP killed as well. When you look back in Tigray, TPLF killed many of their own members for senseless issues. So I agree the memorial must be a healing process for Ethiopia and should honor all those killed including by EPRP, TPLF and the likes. When we acknowledge that, then we are on the way to healing.
