Transcription

Yes, the world has done a poor job to stop the genocide. Still, I don't see much in the curriculum of the schools to teach the new generations what the other countries have done against their own people. I didn't see that in the curriculum where I studied in Iraq. I don't think in any country in Middle East they teach that in their schools. Even in the Western countries, maybe it's just a pass-by study. There is limited programs in the schools about what happened. To my knowledge, Colorado University in Boulder is taking a step to gather all the papers of genocide all over the world and put them in the archive. I hope that will be a step to teach the world what has happened in Russia during the rule of the Communists, during the rule of Stalin, what happened in Iraq. I definitely know that the papers of Saddam Hussein are now in CU Boulder to make a case of genocide against Saddam Hussein. I know the paper of the Jews are there, what Hitler did against the Jews. So I hope all these will be documented, what happened to the minorities all over the world will be documented and be put in a place. CU Boulder is planning to put those papers on the World Wide Web and let the people all over the world to know about it. This is a great step.
