“Don’t Look Away: Images of Systematic Torture in the Syrian Regime”

As the humanitarian crisis in Syria deepens, this panel will explore the role of photography in documenting and raising international awareness about torture, mass killings, and other atrocities committed by the Assad regime. An exhibit of 30 images taken by a former Syrian military police photographer, code named “Caesar” and tasked with photographing corpses of victims who died inside facilities run by the Assad regime, will be on display for two weeks following the panel. The images are part of a cache of 55,000 photographs taken between 2011 and 2013, and smuggled out of Syria in 2014.

Panelists: Stephen J. Rapp, Former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issue; Mouaz Moustafa, Executive Director, Syrian Emergency Task Force; Tyler Jess Thompson, Policy Director, United for A Free Syria; Naomi Kikoler, Deputy Director, Center for Prevention of Genocide, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum; Susan Farbstein, Co-director, International Human Rights Clinic, Harvard Law School
