Out of Exile- The Abducted and Displaced People of Sudan

Out of Exile brings the crisis in Darfur and other parts of Sudan out of the policy realm and into the lives of people who never meant to carry the label "refugees." Decades of conflicts and persecution have driven millions from their homes in all parts of Sudan. Many thousands more have been enslaved as human spoils of war. In their own words, the narrators of Out of Exile recount their lives before their displacement, the reasons for their flight, and their hopes of someday returning home. Out of Exile includes the personal stories of 17 Sudanese people, as told to Craig Walzer, a former legal services adviser to Darfuri and other Sudanese refugees in Cairo. They describe life in the major stations on the "refugee railroads": in the desert camps of Khartoum, the underground communities of Cairo, the humanitarian metropolis of Kakuma refugee camp, and the still-growing internally displaced persons camps in Darfur. Featured Contributor: Dave Eggers, author of the memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and the novel What is the What Featured Author: Craig Walzer, editor, Out of Exile With Special Guests: Abuk Bak Macham, refugee from Southern Sudan and featured subject in Out of Exile. Franco Majok, one of Sudan's "lost boys" who recently returned to Sudan to build a school in his native village with donated funds. Moderated by: John Prendergast, co-chair of the Enough Project, the Center for American Progress's initiative to end genocide and crimes against humanity
