George Washington Williams, “An Open Letter to His Serene Majesty Leopold II, King of the Belgians and Sovereign of the Independent State of Congo By Colonel, The Honorable Geo. W. Williams, of the United States of America,” 1890. I have the honour to submit for your Majesty’s consideration some reflections respecting the Independent. King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa is the informative history book written by Adam Hochschild, telling what seems to be the lost Holocaust of the late 1800s which continued into the early 1900s in Belgium. Under the ruling of King Leopold II, Belgium exploited the Congo and committed horrendous crimes. The narrative follows the troubled history of the region from King Leopold II of Belgium's avaricious economic exploitation of the country, tracing the impact of this horrifying and often-forgotten colonial crime through to the modern day, this brutally honest doc is a heart-rending tale of a rich country destroyed by imperial greed.
