Uganda has issued hundreds of thousands of people dead by “citizen-to-peer collaboration between ethnic groups”. A photographic collection that reflects the appearance of children who live vigorously lively vigorously with the war and the daily lives next to each other, with a miserable past. Many color pictures.
