Google and Holocaust Memorial Museum partnership to visualize the atrocities in Darfur.

"The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has joined with Google in an unprecedented online mapping initiative. Crisis in Darfur enables more than 200 million Google Earth users worldwide to visualize and better understand the genocide currently unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. The Museum has assembled content photographs, data, and eyewitness testimony from a number of sources that are brought together for the first time in Google Earth." via USHHM

"Educating today's generation about the atrocities of the past and present can be enhanced by technologies such as Google Earth. When it comes to responding to genocide, the world's record is terrible. We hope this important initiative with Google will make it that much harder for the world to ignore those who need us the most." Sara J. Bloomfield, Director, USHMM
