in Awash about that time. Richard Pankhurst, ''Economic History of Ethiopia'' (Addis Ababa: Haile Selassie I University, 1968), p. 334. The fourth post office in Ethiopia (after Harar, Dire Dawa and Addis Ababa) was established in Awash on 1 September 1923, but it may not have been much of a point of origin and arrival but rather a place on the line between the capital and the coast. Early life and medical career Born in the capital city of Addis Ababa, Asrat Woldeyes was about three years old when his family moved to the eastern Ethiopian town of Dire Dawa. He was eight years old at the time of the Italian invasion (Second Italo-Abyssinian War). His father, Ato Weldeyes Altaye, was captured and murdered along with thousands of other civilians following the attempted assassination of the Italian General Graziani (Rodolfo Graziani) on February 19, 1937 in Addis Ababa. His mother died shortly afterwards. '''Awash National Park''' is one of the National Parks (National parks in Ethiopia) of Ethiopia. Located at the southern tip of the Afar Region, this park is 225 kilometers east of Addis Ababa (and a few kilometers west of Awash), with its southern boundary along the Awash River, and covers at least 756 square kilometers of acacia woodland and grassland. The Addis Ababa - Dire Dawa highway passes through this park, separating the Illala Saha Plains to the south from the Kudu Valley to the north. In the south of the park the Awash River gorge has amazing waterfalls. In the upper Kudu Valley at Filwoha are hot springs amid groves of palm trees (Arecaceae). History Asella town got its start before the Second Italian-Abyssinian War. The Italian occupiers wanted to make Asela into a provincial capital, but they were unable to build more than one two-story building and some warehouses of masonry. The 6th brigade and two companies of the 5th brigade of the King's African Rifles captured Asella on 10 April 1941, after pursuing General De Simone (Carlo De Simone) south from Dire Dawa and forcing their way past the Awash River and a dug-in Italian position. Brigade headquarters were afterwards set up in the town. "Local History in Ethiopia" (pdf) The Nordic Africa Institute website (accessed 7 December 2007) Commons:Category:Dire Dawa

The warlord and slaveholder al-Zubayr assumed control of the region's ''zaribas'', and was nominated in 1872 pasha and governor of Bahr el Ghazal for the khedive Isma'il (Isma'il Pasha), ruler of Egypt. Rabih, who was possibly a relative of al-Zubayr, was the chief lieutenant of the pasha. Medical career after the war While serving as a military doctor on the Western Front, he was captured by the Americans in January 1945. He was released from captivity in October 1945. In April 1946, he began to work as a sports doctor for the city of Gladbeck. An application for a license for a hunting gun led to his being identified in 1951 so the GDR issued an arrest warrant. According to his own statement, Schumann served as a ship’s doctor for three years and because he did not have a German passport, he applied for one in Japan in 1954 and received it under his own name. Schumann then fled, first to Egypt and eventually settled in Khartoum in the Sudan as head of a hospital. He was forced to flee from Sudan in 1962 after being recognised by an Auschwitz survivor. Then he went to Ghana, where he received the protection of the head of state, Kwame Nkrumah. Ad Damazin is served by a terminal station of a branch line of the national railway network. However, the train service to Ad Damazin has been discontinued many years ago. Instead the town can be reached from Khartoum via a decent tarmac road and by plane. However, Ad Damazin Airport (Damazin Airport) is mainly served by UNMIS or government flights. *'''Sudan **Khartoum - Khartoum International Airport (Khartoum_Airport) thumb right Illustrations by Angus McNeill, here showing how cable for the railway telegraph was carried and laid (Image:RiverWarillustrationFieldTelegraph.jpg) In vivid style the book describes the background to the war, the relationship of the Upper Nile (Upper Nile, Sudan) to Egypt, the murder of General Charles George Gordon (Charles George Gordon) in the siege at Khartoum, the political reaction in England, and Kitchener's elaborate preparations for the war.

The two groups were ideologically ill-fitted, as they combined the radicalism of the UNT and the Muslim confessionalism of the FLT. S. Nolutshungu, ''Limits of Anarchy'', 58 FLT's president, Ahmed Hassan Musa, missed the conference because in jail in Khartoum; Musa suspected with some reason that Abatcha had deliberately chosen the moment of his imprisonment to organize the conference due to his fear of FLT's numerical superiority over the UNT. As a result, once freed Musa broke with the FROLINAT, the first of many splits that were to plague the history of the organization. V. Thompson & R.

His father, Ato Weldeyes Altaye, was captured and murdered along with thousands of other civilians following the attempted assassination of the Italian General Graziani (Rodolfo Graziani) on February 19, 1937 in Addis Ababa. His mother died shortly afterwards. Returning to Ethiopia as a university graduate, Afewerk could have accepted an assigned ministerial post, but instead decided to spend time travelling around the provinces of Ethiopia to get more experience of his native country and culture, which he reflected in his paintings. In 1954 he held his first one man show in Addis Ababa, that gave him the funds to travel around Europe for two years where he learnt how to design and construct stained glass windows. He also made a special study on Ethiopian illustrated manuscripts in the British Library, the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and the Vatican Library. The last Kaffa king, Gaki Sherocho, resisted for months the combined armies of Wolde Giyorgis, Ras Damisse, and King Abba Jifar II of Jimma (Kingdom of Jimma), until he was captured 11 September 1897, and was first sent to Ankober, then to Addis Ababa. Kaffa was then held as a fief by Wolde Giyogis until 1914. During his visit to Kaffa in 1897, Alexander Bulatovich had the opportunity to study the culture of the inhabitants, describing them in his book ''With the Armies of Menelik II, emperor of Ethiopia'', identifying a number of practices in common with the more familiar Amhara people.
