Crisis in Darfur

U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

Witness the genocide in Darfur -- through geography

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum's "Crisis in Darfur" layer lets you visit the unfolding genocide in Darfur, which has caused one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent times. You can read moving testimonies and see photographic documentation from those directly involved, witness the remains of scores of burned down villages, and follow the refugees to camps in Chad, and -- most important -- learn what you can do to help the innocent victims of this incomprehensible tragedy. From Google Earth, go to “Darfur, Sudan” and explore the “USHMM: Crisis in Darfur."
