From Eritrea’s Ona Massacre of 1970 to Mai-Kadra: Region’s Endless Story of Murder of the Innocent

Child-survivors, family members, relatives, Kerenites and compatriots of Eritrea’s worst single-day massacre at Ona, in the outskirts of Keren, came together this 28 November via a Zoom conference to commemorate the 50th anniversary of that extremely sad occurrence. On the other hand, their neighbors in Ethiopia were this weekend mourning and still counting their dead of their own Ona: Mai-Kadra, 440 kms away down in north western Tigray.
