SMALLEST WITNESSES: THE CRISIS IN DARFUR THROUGH CHILDREN’S EYES

Friday, June 3, 2005

NARRATOR: The images are grim and all too familiar to those whose lives have been destabilized in the Sudanese region of Darfur. These are scenes of villages being burned, of murder, rape, and destruction, of thousands of people turned into refugees on the Sudan and Chad border. All are captured on crayon and paper by Darfur’s smallest witnesses, the children.

One response to “Smallest Witnesses: the crisis in Darfur through children’s eyes

  1. Why is it, that even a small child must be tortured with images…at least there is someone willing to help them release the branding on their psyche. I have used clay and sand myself. Thanks for the site. Now, what do you know about self inflicted or cutters as some refer to it…and surviving families.
