“When we say ‘never again,’ what does it mean?”
—Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor
The installation Meeting the Challenge of Genocide introduces visitors to the concept and law of genocide, and to three contemporary cases of genocide—Rwanda, Srebrenica in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the Darfur region of Sudan—focusing on the warning signs, human devastation, responses to and lingering impact of the violence. Eyewitness video testimonies from activists, survivors, rescuers, journalists, humanitarian aid workers, and more are a highlight of the presentation.
Visitors are also challenged: “What will you do to meet the challenge of genocide?" Individual pledges are collected and tabulated to demonstrate the growing community of people who care about preventing and responding to genocide. They can also join the Museum’s e-community of those interested in staying connected to the Museum’s work to prevent genocide.
