Reflections on ‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’

By  Simon Weldemichael | On 1st September 2020, Eritreans celebrated the 59th anniversary of the beginning of the armed struggle for independence, which was initiated by Hamid Idris Awate. Not long ago, HDRI publishers published Awate’s biography, ‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’, and the 59th anniversary of the armed struggle presents a wonderful occasion to reflect on the book.

‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’ is a pioneering work written by Haileslasie Weldu, a former journalist of Dimtsi Hafash and a freedom fighter during the struggle for independence. The origins of the present volume lie in an article about Hamid Idris Awate written in November 1983. The author spent 35 years to write about the life of Hamid Idris Awate. He pored over all the available literature on the topic and interviewed 65 persons who knew Awate. The diligence and high standard of the author are reflected in the 410 footnotes scattered throughout the book, which is well-written and easy to follow. Read more
