Atrocity: The Latin American Experience
In 1995 the German public was confronted with an exhibition of crimes committed by the German Armed Forces in East Europe in the Second World War. Photos were on display that showed in graphic detail the killings committed by German soldiers, and documented the direct involvement in mass murder by many men (and some women). In 2015, an exhibition of photos of torture and murder by security forces in Syria were shown in the United Nations’ headquarters in New York and later in the European Parliament in Brussels; the photos had been taken by a photographer working for the Syrian security forces and later been brought out of the country. Stephen Ferry’s (2012) Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict is a collection of images of massive and persistent violence. These are all images of atrocious crimes; they are also documentations of atrocity crimes.
