Crimes Against Humanity looks at how genocide and ethnic conflict have occurred many times in the last hundred years. This exhibition looks at how these events happen often under the cover of war. It explores the challenges involved in trying to prevent them. The display examines some of the common features shared by the bloodshed in Armenia, Nazi-occupied Europe, Cambodia, East Timor, Bosnia, Rwanda and elsewhere. A specially commissioned 30-minute film is at the heart of the exhibition. Using the words of well-known commentators including broadcaster Fergal Keane, African affairs expert Alison des Forges, war correspondent Martin Bell and international jurist Richard Goldstone, it explores how groups of people are ostracised by societies, the role of mass propaganda and international involvement and justice.
