King Leopold II of Belgium, Covered Up Genocide, and Monuments

There is a man as evil as Hitler, but hardly anyone knows his name. That man is King Leopold II of Belgium and he was responsible for a hidden holocaust that wiped out between 70-90% of the Congolese population from 1885 to his death in 1909. So, how is a leader that is responsible for an estimated 10-15 million revered and remembered as a humanitarian? This is due in part to one of the most egregious coverups in European history.
