Since the outbreak of violence in Syria in 2011, the Museum has sought to educate the general public on the crimes against humanity and war crimes being committed against Syrian civilians by the Assad regime and its allies, stimulate policy considerations for efforts to save civilian lives there, give voice to the victims, and support efforts to pursue justice for these crimes. All of the Museum’s activities on Syria are predicated on the belief that the global response to the crisis has been woefully insufficient and a stain on our collective conscience.
