  • 20. Works Cited Dau, John Bul, and Michael S. Sweeney. Introduction. God Grew Tired of Us. By Dau and Sweeney. 2007. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic Society, 2008. 2-7. Print. The key information from this source pertained to what it was like to be a victim to genocide, and the way it sounded, looked and felt. I knew that this was a reliable source because of the fact that it came from the non-fiction book that we were assigned to read in class. I also knew that both the author and the publisher were both very credible. This source gave me a sense of just how horrific it was to be in the midst of the Sudanese genocide. I got a very good picture in my head of this senseless and completely random killings that were committed to so many innocent Sudanese during the late 20th and early 21st century. Dau, John Bul, and Micheal S. Sweeney. God Grew Tired of Us. 2007. Washington, DC: National Geographic Society, 2008. Print. This source was a memoir of John Bul Dau’s life, written by John Bul Dau. It had a lot of facts that had to do with genocide in Sudan. I knew this was a good source of I nformation because Ms Lester and Ms Hamilton made my group read it in lit. I knew that since it was a first hand account of Dau’s journey. This helped to achieve the best information possible. It also helped me understand the topic of genocide better. Eggers, Dave, and John Pendergrast. “In Sudan, War Is around the Corner.” New York Times 13 July 2010: n. pag. Global Issues in Context. Web. 22 Oct. 2010. <http://find.galegroup.com/gic/infomark.do?&contentSet=IAC- Documents&idigest=b527955b5caccdb4b4a2d40e86fe061a&type=retrieve&tabID=T006&prodId=GIC&docId=A231384030&source=gale &userGroupName=cant48040&version=1.0>. The basic information that I used from this site pertained to the time period of the war and the reason for the conflict. I found out that the war took place from 1983 to 2005 and was between the SPLA and Sudan’s government. No evaluation of the source was needed because I found it using Gale Global Issues in Context. I did, however, confirm that the article was, in fact, from the New York Times published on July 13, 2010. From reading this article, I confirmed the exact years that the war in Sudan started and ended in Sudan, because it was not 100% clear in the book. I also found out just how violent the war was. I thought that it was kind of a small conflict, but it was described as “one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th century.” Phillips, Edward, ed. “Preventing Genocide - Who is at Risk? - Sudan.” United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. N.p., 27 Sept. 2010. Web. 8 Nov. 2010. <http://www.ushmm.org/genocide/take_action/atrisk/region/sudan>. This source provides information of the political issues in Sudan and the war. I evaluated the information provided by this website by using the CRAPP test. This source enhanced my knowledge on the genocide events including when the peace agreements were negotiated and what they included within them. “Selected Timeline of Sudan.” Chart. 2007. God Grew Tired of Us. By John Bul Dau and Michael S. Sweeny. 2007. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic Society, 2008. 8-11. Print. The information included in this timeline pertained to the history of the area that is today known as Sudan, from it’s mention in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, when it is referred to as Kush, all the way to 2005 when the permanent cease- fire in Sudan commences and John Garang is elected president. I used this source because I knew I needed to know the exact dates and causes of Sudan’s civil war. I knew that this would be a reliable source because of the fact that it is in the non-fiction book that we were assigned to read in class. I knew that it would be accurate for this reason. This enhanced my learning because I learned the exact causes and dates of the civil war in Sudan, as well as some key events during and leading up to the war. I was also able to identify the key figures and places in the war. "Genocide in Darfur, Sudan." DarfurScores. Genocide Intervention Network , n.d.
