Why Don’t We Know About The Congo?

One of the most horrific tragedy’s  in human history is the Holocaust of Germany under Nazi rule. But there is an equally horrific tragedy that happened, and continues to happen, and it seems like no one knows about The Congo. War in the Congo has led to the regions human loss of life akin to the numbers seen when the Nazi’s were defeated in Europe. Have you heard about the tragic events that have taken place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo?

The Congo is rich with a abundance of natural resources and this has led to several outbreaks of violence, including civil wars where millions of people have died. Go to Wikipedia and look up the First and Second Congo Wars for more information. I do think that this is something you should educate yourself about if you are not aware of the massive amount of death.
