Hell Is an Understatement: A Report from the Bloody, Crumbling Central African Republic

posted on May 2, 2014

At The New Republic, Graeme Wood reports from Central African Republic (CAR) in a piece written with support from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for the Prevention of Genocide. Wood writes, “About 15 percent of Central Africans are Muslims, and for much of the country’s 54-year history, they lived in relative harmony with the Christian majority. But in the last year, CAR has collapsed—first in a spasm of political violence and now in a grisly carnival of factional and religious slaughter that has left it one of the very worst places on Earth.”
