Breaking the Silence

Words are powerful. When people dare to break the silence about mass atrocities, they promote the human rights of everyone.

This gallery explores the role of secrecy and denial in many atrocities around the world. It includes a focused examination of the Ukrainian Holodomor, the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide and the Srebrenica Genocide in Bosnia. The Institute for Research of Genocide, Canada and the Congress of North American Bosniaks together with the Canadian Bosniak community are grateful for the leadership of CMHR who have adopted a proposal of the Institute for Research of Genocide Canada to set up the permanent museum exhibition about the genocide in Srebrenica.
