The Crime of the Congo is a 1909 book about human rights abuses in the Congo Free State, a private state established and controlled by the King of the Belgians, Leopold II. The book was intended as an exposé of the situation in the so-called Congo Free State, an area occupied and designated as the personal property of Leopold II of Belgium and where the serious human rights abuses were occurring. Indigenous people in the region were being brutally exploited and tortured, particularly in the lucrative rubber trade.
This book has 135 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1909.
