"On Our Watch: ISIS and the Yazidi of Northern Iraq”
December 2, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
Since the rise of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in August 2014, the Yazidi community has been in the midst of a human rights crisis. Members of the Houston Yazidi community will join Holocaust Museum Houston staff to provide a brief history of the Yazidi religion and culture and a panel discussion about the current perilous situation of the community. ISIS is said to have killed more than 6,000 Yazidi men, women, and children and kidnapped an additional 6,000 members of the community, mostly women and female children. The Yazidi population of Northern Iraq is now displaced to refugee camps, and they are suffering from lack of food, water, bad weather, mental and physical health conditions, as well as a lack of education facilities. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx
