USHMM Presents ‘Exposing the Darkness: Perspectives on Mass Atrocities’ at FAU, UM

In 2015, staff from the United States Holocaust Museum & Memorial (USHMM) Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide traveled to northern Iraq to document evidence of mass atrocities carried out by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS). They found that IS committed crimes against humanity, war crimes, and ethnic cleansing against various minority groups and perpetrated genocide against the Yezidi people. Join us for a discussion about this trip and the importance of bearing witness.
