The Lost Boys of Sudan

By: Jeff Burlingame

As civil war riled Sudan, young men —some orphans, some horribly injured, and some with terrible memories of suffering family members, hunger, and loved ones murdered —survived thousand-mile journeys. Once they became refugees, they were named the “Lost Boys” and soon the world would know their horrific tribulations. Using a mixture of anecdotes and data, this fascinating volume keeps readers intrigued even as it informs. Readers learn about the conflict that would eventually cause Sudan to become two countries with the north half dominated by Arab Muslims and the south populated by numerous ethnic groups. A map, reproductions, color photos, and sidebars break up the text. A time line, notes, glossary, reading list, website list, bibliography, and an index make this title useful for report writers.

Except for Potato Famine, the people in these books are fleeing violence. Most of the volumes follow a specific person throughout his escape, using that narrative as a framework for explaining the historical and cultural context that led up to the horror. While stories of Holocaust escapees are common, the young men profiled in Perl’s title not only escaped from Auschwitz, but also made it their duty to tell the world about the atrocities they witnessed. Lost Boys and Khmer Rouge are both particularly strong entries in the series, in part because the conflicts they cover are less familiar to most readers. Potato Famine departs from the narrative structure of the other volumes since no particular escapee takes a major role in framing the book. The primary-source quotes and period imagery throughout are well chosen and amplify the texts. maps. photos. bibliog. chron. further reading. glossary. index. notes. Web sites.
