The War in Darfur

As World War II ended, the world beat its collective chest defiantly and proclaimed it would "never forget" the genocide of the Holocaust so that it could "never again" be repeated. The world – as history has proven – has a short memory. The Holocaust was not the world’s first genocide, and it has not been the last.

In the Sudanese government, power rests primarily with an elite Arab group based in the capital of Khartoum. Historically, regions outside of Khartoum, such as the South and Darfur, in the West, have been marginalized politically and economically. The country’s conflict stems from this exclusion.
