Never Forgotten

by Paul E Huntsberger
Publication Date: 13/10/2014
RRP  $16.06 $15.90
Never Forgotten chronicles the Peace Corps service of a young American who taught in Saganeiti, Eritrea during a nascent rebellion against Ethiopia in 1965-1967. The story recounts his return after 35 years to reunite with Eritreans after years of war led to independence. Numerous photographs capture life in Eritrea and in Africa in the 1960s.

Experience the rhythm of village life in highland Eritrea, as the author remembers enjoying Eritrean hospitality, playing with children, attending religious feasts, giving medical assistance, celebrating Christmas, attending funerals, riding busses, walking to remote villages with students, and attending engagements and weddings. Appreciate the challenges of teaching in and reorganizing a middle school, and of motivating students to compete successfully for national scholarships.

Join the author on unscripted travel and adventures in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Sudan. Share the heartfelt letters sent to the author by students and friends after he left Eritrea to appreciate how keen Eritreans were to keep in touch. Gain insights into the tensions arising between Ethiopia and Eritrea after 1967. Rejoice with the author who fortuitously reconnected in 1999 with a special student who rose to a high level in the Eritrean government. Witness how the author meets former students in Asmara in 2002, and then locates his elderly maid against all odds.

Never Forgotten pays tribute to Saganeiti and to all Eritreans and Peace Corps volunteers the author befriended, and honors students who died for the cause of independence.
