Our Walls Bear Witness: Sudan at the Crossroads

Images of Sudan trip projected on Museum walls

Last month, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington sponsored a trip to South Sudan as part of its genocide prevention efforts. The purpose of this trip was to see firsthand the dangers facing Sudanese civilians as southerners prepare to vote on a referendum that could give the South independence from the North.

The Museum is committed to raising awareness internationally about ongoing conflict and the potential for new violence in Sudan to help ensure the Sudanese people can experience a peaceful and secure future.

As part of this effort, the Museum recently projected building-size photos and video from the trip onto its exterior walls.
