The Survivors of Liberia’s War: Mary Pollee’s Story

Mary Pollee grew up, worked, and lived on the Firestone plantation until Liberia’s civil war. When she was raped by government forces and her husband was killed, she fled into the bush with her children. Her youngest child died of starvation, and one of her daughters died after being raped by Charles Taylor’s rebels.
