Introduced by Academy Award-winning actor John Voight, this award-winning series presents the definitive, most comprehensive overview of the history of genocide. With the aid of an impressive array of scholars, experts, eyewitnesses, and survivors from around the world, the programs examine the complex dimensions of human nature's darkest side. After the atrocities of World War II, the cry of conscience was "never again!" As this program demonstrates, that bitterly learned injunction went unheeded throughout much of the world. The chronicle of genocide continues with a look at Mao's purges in China, Cambodia under Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge, the Arab/Israeli conflict, border wars in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and killing in Central America. Guests include Dr. Ben Kiernan, Genocide Studies Program director at Yale University; Pierre-Richard Prosper, Special Counsel and Policy Advisor to U.S. Ambassador at Large for War Crimes Issues; and Sophal Leng Stagg, Cambodian survivor and author of Hear Me Now: Tragedy in Cambodia. Educational use price outside the USA and Canada is $99 per volume with classroom viewing rights. Home Video pricing cannot be used in any educational or institutional environments.
