Myanmar’s Killing Fields


We watched the documentary below in a class I teach on anthropology and war.  It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever shown in a class. Before the period began, I warned students that it contained graphic violence and that they had the option not to watch. They could choose not to stay,  without it counting against the attendance portion of their grade. A handful of students chose to leave. 

For those who stayed, we were pretty emotionally exhausted by the end of the period. However, I think most people agreed that it was worth watching to see the extent of the violence against the Rohingya in Myanmar, which many people did not know much about. I thought I’d share it here, for anyone interested.
