The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Early Warning Project has identified Burma as the country most at risk for an episode of state-led mass killing.
Hundreds have been killed, tens of thousands have fled under the most hazardous conditions, and 140,000 have been forced into horrible, overcrowded camps where they face severe restrictions and are denied basic necessities, including medical care.
Here’s eight warning signs of genocide United to End Genocide has identified in Burma:
United to End Genocide completed a four week fact-finding mission to Burma on March 16, 2014. What we discovered was alarming. We documented dangerous warning signs of genocide in “Marching to Genocide in Burma”. Deteriorating conditions have put Burma on a downward trajectory that could end in the world’s next genocide without immediate action by the United States and the international community.
The Early Warning Project is a project of the Center for the Prevention of Genocide of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in partnership with the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College.
