Item description for Aboke Girls. Children Abducted in Northern Uganda by Els De Temmerman...

In October 1996, one hundred and thirty nine girls were abducted from St Mary's College, in northern Uganda. In an act of extraordinary courage, Sister Rachele, the Italian deputy headmistress, followed the abductors. Her journey took her to the Lord's Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, where she managed to secure the release of the majority of the girls. What happened to the remaining thirty girls and thousands of other children who have disappeared from their homes and schools in northern Uganda since the arrival of the Lord's Resistance Army? In this book journalist Els De Temmerman reconstructs the journey of two Aboke girls who managed to excape and one of the abductors, a fourteen year old boy who was part of Kony's elite troops.

Reviews - What do customers think about Aboke Girls. Children Abducted in Northern Uganda?

A Heartbreaking Story of Courage  Oct 2, 2006
Everyone should read this book to be more educated on how to act as advocates on behalf of children around the world, especially in Uganda. While the story is heartbreaking, it's necessary for us to know the world we live in. Thank you to the author for her excellent work in getting the story of these children out.
Absolutely rivetting - a MUST read for anyone interested in the Northern Ugandan crisis  Jun 30, 2005
The abduction of over 40 girls from the Catholic School at Aboke, and the nun who followed the rebels on foot to get them back is an amazingly heartwrenching and well told tale.

Els De Temmerman also offers fascinating insights into the twisted mind of rebel leader Joseph Kony, and his spiritual quest to purify the Acholi race. If at all you are interested in the Northern Ugandan crisis, then this is an absolute must read.
this book brings tears to your eyes  Feb 28, 2003
Despite the writing style seduces you to finish this book the same day you have started it, the topic of it is so heart breaking and shocking, you just need to put it away and give yourself the time to reflect on what it is all about, to get your courage together, and proceed again.
This book is written by a great brave lady I happened to meet on one of her book presentations. It handles about the child soldiers in Uganda and the bravery of an Italian nun who risked her life to get them out of the hand of the rebellions in the North. Els has quit her job and focused on the writing of her experiences and on the project of helping the ex-kids soldiers back to a normal life. Because of her activities the warlord has recently, 2002, has put a price on her head. This however doesn't keep her from going again to Uganda.
The profits of this book goes to her education project.
If you want information out of first hand, then you should buy and read this book!
