Ripples of Genocide podcast and online exhibit

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum recently launched an online exhibit, Ripples of Genocide: Journey Through the Eastern Congo. The exhibit describes the devastation occurring in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The site is an audiovisual journal created from Angelina Jolie's notes from her trip there in 2003, commentary by John Prendergast of the International Crisis Group and photographs by Ed Parsons and Laura Engelbrecht. A teacher's guide is included on the site as well.

You can also download Jolie's narration and Predergast's commentary as a podast from the iTunes Music Store.
