what going on?
Over 6,000 men served and 19 fell in the Congo Battalion (1960-64), Sweden’s most dramatic and contentious UN operation. Many of the participants have borne the experience as a lifelong, well-hidden trauma. A visit to the Congo after fifty years causes some of them to finally open up and tell the things that they haven’t even been able to say to their closest family.
