Even as the Syrian conflict rages, a legal case is being built against President Bashar al-Assad, who is accused of committing crimes against humanity and war crimes. Through personal testimonies and unprecedented access to Syrian regime documents, the documentary tells the stories of survivors of torture, families of the dead and missing, and regime defectors risking their lives to expose the truth—the torture and murder of civilians on an industrial scale.
The Museum’s goals to elevate the voices of victims, empower them to seek justice, and help secure accountability are part of the work of the Ben Ferencz International Justice Initiative in the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide.
