Darfur on Google Earth If you use Google Earth (if not, you should!) search for "Darfur, Sudan", click on the fire flame sign and download the file. It gives a glimpse of the horrible genocide that's been unfolding there in the first years of the 21st century through information, video footage, photographs and eyewitness testimony thanks to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The Washington Post reports:
When Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel conceived of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, he envisioned a "living memorial" that would not only chronicle the crimes of the past but also take on issues of contemporary genocide, said Sara J. Bloomfield, director of the Washington museum.

"A memorial unresponsive to the future would violate the memory of the past," Bloomfield quoted Wiesel as saying.

To help fulfill that mission, the Holocaust Museum this week launched a multimedia initiative with Google Earth to highlight the genocide unfolding in the Darfur region of western Sudan, where government-backed militias and nomadic tribesmen have burned huts and villages to drive sedentary farmers from their homes.
