  • The story behind the image:

    There are few words to describe the stark contrast between the dignity of the human spirit and the dark evil of genocide. This refugee lives hour to hour, full well knowing that nightfall may never come.

    "To witness genocide is to feel not only the chill of your own mortality, but the degradation of all humanity. Even the most brilliant photography cannot capture the landscape of genocide." - Fergal Keane, BBC
