Sudan at the Crossroads
Projected on the US Holocaust Memorial Museum's exterior walls for three evenings in November 2010, a short film and dozens of photographs opened a window into the lives of the people of South Sudan. The images were taken by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Lucian Perkins, who joined Mike Abramowitz, head of the Museum's genocide prevention program, and Andrew Natsios, former US Envoy to Sudan, on a recent Museum-sponsored bearing witness trip to assess conditions in South Sudan, as the region prepared for a referendum on its independence. In January 2011, southerners voted overwhelmingly for independence.
