King Leopold’s Ghost

    Tuesday 1 July 2008
    Frontline Club

    Frontline Confidential in association with the CIJ.

    Adam Hochschild in conversation with Gavin MacFadyen, director of the CIJ, talks about the secret holocaust in King Leopold’s Belgian Congo and the forced labour system that killed 10 million people. He describes an extraordinary investigation that unearthed heroic and compassionate British investigators who formed one of the world’s first human rights organisations. And why it isn’t taught in most Belgian (or British) schools.
