United Against Genocide: Understand, Question, Prevent

Genocide is not a sudden phenomenon, but the result of a deliberate process that can be stopped. Understanding its warning signs and stages, while grasping its mechanisms and causes allows us to better comprehend this process and prevent its recurrence. Through rare historical documents, archival photos and testimony, the exhibition identifies the stages leading to genocide, the role of the media, the importance of survivors for remembrance and the fight for justice.
