More Darfur Research

ChildDrawing

I'm still researching the situation in Darfur with the aim of making a new print on the subject. Today I discovered a powerful collection of children's drawings on the Human Rights Watch website. There are very few photographs of the janjaweed, and photos of attacks on the villages are generally after the fact, so the children's drawings actually serve as a report on the atrocities that are being committed by the janjaweed and by the government soldiers.

As I research, I'm finding myself especially drawn to the experiences of Darfurian women and children.
