Statement on the Human Rights Violations in Afghanistan
August 16, 2021
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is extremely concerned by the human rights violations occurring in Afghanistan as the Taliban consolidates its control of the country while the United States and other NATO countries withdraw their forces. The unfolding tragedy is reminiscent of the lead up to the Rwandan genocide, when the warning signs were present, but the world turned a blind eye. We must learn from history and respond when we see indicators of potential genocide.

Statement on the Anti-Muslim Hate Crime in Canada
June 10, 2021
We express our sadness and horror over the brutal attack on a Muslim family in Canada last weekend. The family, on foot and waiting to cross the street in London, Ontario, was deliberately hit by a vehicle. Four members of the family, ranging in age from 15 to 74, were killed and a 9-year-old boy has been hospitalized in serious condition. It is clear to Canadian authorities that this was a hate crime because the family was targeted for their religion.
