Wolf Böwig – Bendu Malen 2005 (Grenzgebiet Sierra Leone/Liberia)

In the insanity of killing, the ultimate refinement of horror can be to refrain from killing. Morie was the victim of such an act of cruelty. His entire village was killed to the last man, and he, he alone, was left alive. “They showed me the dead people and made me chief of the village, threatening to kill me if I ever crossed their path again.” Morie’s mother, before the attack, had put her little prince to sleep. In mid-slaughter, gunshots woke the boy to the nightmare of living. “When the rebels found me inside the house, they grabbed my hand and took me to the village, till I identified my father.” There lay his father, in the middle of the apocalypse, still identifiable, “with his belly open and his throat cut.”
