And Satan Also Came Among Them, Once Magazine: Issue 5
Nearly 50 miles from the bustling city of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, the Mennonites of Manitoba Colony are physically and culturally isolated. The approximately 300 families that make up this “old colony” are deeply committed to a life of simplicity, devotion to God, and nonviolence.
From 2006-2009, however, their mores came under attack, as approximately 130 women and girls were drugged and raped by a group of men within the conservative community.
Noah Friedman-Rudovsky, and writer Jean Friedman-Rudovsky traveled to the reclusive community to report on the atrocities. Their reporting took them into the homes of altered lives and eventually inside the courtroom, where the accused were met by a room of their peers, searching for answers.
