The Genocide Awareness and Activism Club put up posters around campus to raise awareness about genocides around the world for Genocide Awareness Week, which began Monday and goes until May 2.

The club, headed by Alex Berman ’14, Ben Klein ’14 and Josh Shapiro ’14 put up posters with “faces of genocides” and various facts on them.

The club wants to educate students about these historic tragedies that go unnoticed. “The impetus for creating this week was the fact that many students don’t know much about the atrocities that occur many many miles away,” Shapiro said.
