Father of the Lost Boys : a memoir

Alaak, Yuot A.2020
Books
This is the true story of Mecak Ajang Alaak, leader and educator, who in the early 1990s assumed command of 20,000 of the Lost Boys of South Sudan during the conflict of the Second Sudanese Civil War, and led them on a harrowing dangerous journey of several thousand kilometres to the safety of the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. Told by Mecak's son, Yuot, himself a Lost Boy, and eyewitness on the journey, it describes the enduring belief of Mecak Ajang Alaak that, when it comes to resistance, education is ultimately the mightiest weapon of them all.
