With the loss of Massawa in 1990, the Derg regularly bombed the city. In 1941, forty-nine years prior to the Derg's defeat at Massawa, the Italians had surrendered Massawa to the Britis...

I had a discussion with several people during the 28th anniversary of the liberation of the port city of Massawa. During the discussion, the history of Massawa was raised including its tribulations and triumphs. Many in the group were not aware of the massive earthquake of Massawa in 1921. I am re-posting my interview with Merhatinsaie Gebremariam.

This conversation was originally posted on kemey.blogspot.com. Dr. Zaccaria argues that the period 1914-1918, which will mark the celebration of the First World War (WWI) Centenary, had a great impact on Eritrean society because of the introduction of industrial production to Eritrea.
