Anti-Rohingya Mass Violence

In August of 2017, the military and local collaborators in the Buddhist-majority Myanmar began violently driving Rohingya Muslims from their homes – destroying and looting villages; killing men, women and children; and raping women. The campaign killed at least 6,700 Rohingya and drove as many as 650,000 into refugee camps in neighboring Bangladesh. In November of 2017, a crew from USC Shoah Foundation spent time in the camps interviewing refugees. Text from -
