On January 27th the world marks Holocaust Memorial Day, which coincides with the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the largest Nazi death camp in World War Two, Auschwitz-Birkenau.  We at Darfur and Beyond stand in solidarity together committed to fighting genocide the world over. 

On January 27, 2010, survivors of the Holocaust, Darfur and Beyond and organizations who hope one day to see accountability exacted for subsequent human rights atrocities, including those occurring recently in Darfur, have submitted briefing to the United States Supreme Court.  They urge the Court never to forget the horrific events of the Holocaust and never to abandon the legacy of the Nuremberg trials that followed:  "The Nuremberg trials marked a sea-change in the dignity afforded the Rule of Law in holding accountable persons who exploit government power to commit the most extreme atrocities against their fellow human beings." 

The Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) filed a brief with the United States Supreme Court on behalf of the respondents in the case of Samantar v. Yousuf, NO. 08-1555. In this case, the Court will decide if former foreign government officials – who, after using their power to order torture, rapes, and killings of innocent civilians as tools of political repression – can choose to live in the United States while refusing to submit to its laws and refusing to accept responsibility for their actions.
