Burma’s Path to Genocide


Visit This Exhibition

Location: Second Floor

Tickets: Not required

Plan to spend: 30 minutes

Recommended: Ages 11 and up

In 2017, violence against the Rohingya in Burma, also known as Myanmar, forced some 700,000 to flee for their lives. Many remain in neighboring Bangladesh today. This exhibition explores how the Rohingya, a Muslim minority, went from citizens to outsiders—and became targets of a sustained campaign of genocide. The exhibition features audio, video, photography, and first-person testimony. Guest curator Greg Constantine, a photojournalist, has been documenting the community since 2006. 

In March 2022, Secretary of State Antony Blinken toured this exhibition and announced the US determination that the Burmese military committed genocide against the Rohingya.

Can’t visit in person? Explore the history of the Rohingya and read personal stories from Rohingya who fled violence in Burma in the online exhibition.
