Eritrea – From Liberation to Oppression

The updated new edition of our Eritrea book in English.

Die 2015 erschienene Eritrea-Buch (Band 78, Reihe Weltmission heute) in einer aktualisierten Neuauflage in Englisch. Herausgegeben mit Unterstützung von Brot für die Welt und der Evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland.

In 2013 and 2014, the number of refugees coming from Eritrea to Germany increased. Many parishes and other groups supported the newcomers – but there was little information on the country. Then EMW decided to publish this book. The response to the German edition was overwhelming.

Shortly after the release in April 2015, we recieved hundreds of orders. Even immigration authorities requested an issue, because it was (and remains) the only publication on the political, social, economic and religious situation in Eritrea, which is available in Germany. The feedback of those who read the book, was almost entirely positive.

Only some allegations where raised that the authors would draw a far too negative and one-sided picture of Eritrea. The critical reports of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea and of all human rights organizations were unfounded political slander. We have examined all of these allegations for the English Edition, but still consider the assessment of our authors correct. This was also confirmed by the new report of the UN Commission of June 2016.

The perception of the Eritrean Government and the judgment of renowned international organisations remain incompatible. It is high time to overcome this blockade-in the interest of the Eritrean people and the international community.
