Mengistu Haile Mariam was the Marxist leader of Ethiopia from 1974 to 1991. His regime, known as the Derg, was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths by famine, forced resettlements and direct murder. Mengistu permitted thousands of Ethiopian Jews to resettle in Israel.[1] In 1991, his regime was overthrown and he received asylum in Zimbabwe.
