Caesar Photos: Inside Syrian Authorities’ Prisons 10-20 March 2015
The exhibit “Caesar Photos: Inside Syrian Authorities’ Prisons” opening on Tuesday, 10 March 2015, 6-7pm, at the South Wall of the United Nations Conference Building (First floor).
This exhibit will display photos of detainees from Syrian prisons that were taken by a defector from the Syrian army who is known by the pseudonym Caesar. Upon thorough analysis by a first-rate legal and forensic team, it was concluded that the over 55,000 photos Caesar smuggled out of Syria documented at least 11,000 deaths under detainment.
The photos were provided by the Coalition for a Democratic Syria (CDS), a non-governmental organization that works closely with Caesar and the Caesar team to coordinate exhibitions of the Caesar photos at prominent institutions, including the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., the United Nations Security Council and the United States Congress.
Those attending will need to have existing UN passes.
