Aanolee Martyrs memorial monument and cultural center

The brutalities of Emperor Menilik and his army were unseen and have no parallel in the African continent. The Harma Muraa (breast cutting) and Harka Mura (arms chopping) at Aanolee in Arsi region of Oromia epitomize the cruelty and barbarity of Menilik’s army, while it also captures the greatest human tragedy that Empire builder had carried out in expanding their empire. Today, in Oromia region, monuments are being built in memory of millions of innocent civilians murdered by Menilik and his Army.
