It all started with a small school exercise book. But instead of being full of vocabulary, the pages were covered with the courageous testimonies of 300 Central African women, girls and men. They reveal what Congolese mercenaries did to them between October 2002 and March 2003 in the wake of armed conflict. On their own initiative, they gathered their testimonies together in this book to record the crimes committed against them.
