US Holocaust Memorial Museum mapping genocide threats





The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum today launched World is Witness, a new initiative that opens a window into the lives of people affected by genocide and its long-term consequences.

A project of the Museum's Genocide Prevention Mapping Initiative that documents and maps threats of genocide and related crimes against humanity, World is Witness brings together testimonies, photographs, videos, and other first-hand data in Google Earth, situating eyewitness accounts in their geographic location. World is Witness can be found in Google Earth's Global Awareness folder under the heading, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, or at the Museum's Web site, www.ushmm.org/maps/.
