Totten, Ph.D., Samuel — Genocide in Africa: The Nuba Mountains of Sudan

Posted on June 13th, 2011 in Politics,World Culture,World History by LeGov

Another little publicized war, involving the indiscriminate killing and torture of people in the Nuba Mountains of southern Sudan, in northeast Africa, is our topic in this edition of Radio Curious.

Our guest is Professor Samuel Totten, a genocide scholar based at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. He was last in the Nuba Mountains in January 2011 conducting research for a new book, “Genocidal Actions Against the Nuba Mountains People: Interviews with Survivors of Mass Starvation and Other Atrocities.”  He served as one of the 24 investigators with the U.S. Atrocities Documentation Project in eastern Chad.  His most recent book is “An Oral and Documentary History of the Darfur Genocide.”

This interview with Dr. Totten was recorded from his home in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on June 13, 2011.  We began when I asked him to describe the situation in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan.

The book he recommends is one that he wrote and was just published entitled “We Cannot Forget:  Interviews with Survirors of Genocide on Rwanda.”
