White king, red rubber, black death

Denounced by the Belgian government, this documentary describes how Leopold was directly responsible for the death of 10 million people during the period of 1885 and 1908 while using the Congo as his private colony. Under his military control, the Congo became a forced labor camp of shocking brutality and torture while exporting rubber for the king's personal coffers. It is believed to be the impetus for the first Human Rights movement based on the cruelty and mass murders during Leopold's reign of terror.
