On December 5, the Museum opened a new exhibition entitled, “Syria: Please Don’t Forget Us.” The exhibition provides information on the conflict in Syria where the Syrian government is perpetrating well-documented crimes against humanity against its own citizens. Using video, music, and testimony, it tells the story of one man’s journey to raise awareness about the Syrian government’s practice of arresting and detaining in secret its own citizens.
As climate change increasingly affects societies worldwide, its links with mass atrocities warrants further exploration. However, rigorous studies are few and far between.

The fourth anniversary of the Syrian civil war is this week, and the statistics showing the human toll of the conflict are bleak. Nine children are killed in Syria every day. 6-percent of the population has been killed, maimed, or wounded. Life expectancy has fallen by 27-percent, from 75.9 years to 55.7 years. And 3.3 million Syrians have fled and are living as refugees in neighboring countries; 7.6 million people are internally displaced.
On the fourth anniversary of the uprising in Syria, the Museum calls for effective and sustained efforts to end the horrific suffering of the Syrian people, who are in the midst of the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II and facing the threat of genocide.
