“I Want Justice!"
Exhibition
<i>US Holocaust Memorial Museum</i>
US Holocaust Memorial Museum

This exhibition explores the history of efforts to hold perpetrators of genocide and mass atrocities accountable through court proceedings, from the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals to the ongoing trials in Cambodia of surviving Khmer Rouge leaders. It also looks at ways Cambodian survivors are seeking other forms of “justice” as they continue to struggle with the legacy of the murderous Khmer Rouge era.

Location
Wexner Center, Second Floor. No passes required.

This exhibition was made possible in part by the J. B. and M. K. Pritzker Family Foundation.
