“I Want Justice!”

Visit This Exhibition

This exhibition is closed.

Since the Holocaust, national and international organizations have struggled to build a foundation of laws, courts, and legal procedures to hold perpetrators of the world’s worst crimes accountable.

“I Want Justice!” explores the history of efforts to hold perpetrators of genocide and mass atrocities accountable through court proceedings, from the Nuremberg trials to the ongoing trials in Cambodia of surviving Khmer Rouge leaders. It also looks at ways Cambodian survivors are seeking other forms of “justice”—personal, cultural, historical—as they continue to struggle with the legacy of the murderous Khmer Rouge era.
