The Righteous for the Yazidis

As the Righteous teach us, the memory of the past must serve to read the present critically in order to prevent crimes and genocides from happening again. For this reason, it is crucial to observe what is happening in the world today.

The genocide of the Yazidis shows us that the dynamics of evil reiterate themselves, then as now. Those who are different suffer discrimination, marginalization and then become the object of violence and crime.

The Righteous for the Yazidis have saved lives by helping those persecuted leave Isis-occupied Sinjar; they have witnessed the horror committed by the Islamic State against women who were kidnapped, raped, and sold as slaves; finally, they have helped survivors rebuild their bodies, minds, and dignity.

Over the years and through our research, we have collected a few figures, which we introduce here.
