 For some reason, the figure generally spoken of says that approximately
20,000 Haitians died during the Duvalier years. Most of these people where
in the slums and rural areas and thus remained anonymous. Members of the
upper-classes and middle-classes did not remain anonymous, giving us a
better accounting there. A city like Jeremie was decimated. It was seen as
a bastion of mulatre power.   > >
