As part of FotoWeekDC, the Museum will project larger-than-life images from South Sudan onto its exterior walls. Journalists Jason Patinkin and Simona Foltyn—both with years of experiencing covering the conflict—recently traveled to South Sudan to gather stories and images for Our Walls Bear Witness. Their work will illuminate the continuing conflict and the atrocities being committed, as well as the spillover effects into the broader region. Their still photos and video footage aim to increase awareness of the ongoing conflict and how it is being reported.
The participation of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide in the annual FotoWeekDC serves to focus the attention of leaders and the public on the persistent threat of genocide around the world. This year, an accompanying panel discussion will examine recent events in South Sudan.
Watch the panel discussion live or on demand at ushmm.org/watch. Join the conversation online using #FotoWeekDC and #SouthSudan.
