Syria: These Names, Written in Blood, Must Not Be Forgotten

via United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime is starving, torturing, and killing its people. The Syrian government has “disappeared” more than 100,000 civilians into a secret network of prisons. One of the disappeared was Mansour Omari.

Mansour and other detainees mixed rust with their own blood to create ink, and used a chicken bone to write the names of 82 fellow prisoners on five scraps of cloth.

With these cloths, Mansour tells the world about the horrors in Syria, and his quest for justice for the detainees.
