Iconic Images of Human Rights Violations

Most of the different daily posts that appear on this blog are organized into so-called “blog series”. For example, there’s a series called iconic images of human rights violations: an iconic image of human rights violations is something very powerful: it can symbolize a certain human catastrophe, and fix it in the human mind; it keeps alive the memory of the event, and educates people about human rights, more than history or story-telling can ever do (icon: “an important and enduring symbol”). More human rights images here.
