Breaking the Silence


Speaking out on human rights violations

Words are powerful. When people dare to break the silence about mass atrocities, they promote the human rights of everyone. 

This gallery explores the role of secrecy and denial in many atrocities around the world. It includes a focused examination of the Ukrainian Holodomor, the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide and the Srebrenica Genocide in Bosnia. The centrepiece is a digital study table that presents images and documents related to mass human rights violations.
