By Maya Moverman:
After the Holocaust, the world said, “Never again.” Yet as we speak,
there is a genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Over 400,000 civilians have been
killed since the genocide started in February 2003, and 2.5 million
have been displaced.
But we don’t hear much about it; it’s not usually on the front page of
the newspaper. The world has turned its head, even though it vowed
never to do so again. As I have family members who lost their lives in
the Holocaust, it is especially important to me to be aware of what’s
going on “behind-the-scenes,” and to help inform others of what’s
happening. If enough people take action by participating in rallies
and writing letters to the government, perhaps we can persuade them to
take serious action against this horrible slaughter.
