On the Brink of Extinction: The Rohingya in Myanmar

Lee Feinstein led a small delegation of the US Holocaust Museum that traveled to Myanmar and Bangladesh this past summer for meetings with the foreign policy leadership of the Burmese government, civil society leaders, and to visit the refugee camps at Cox’s Bazar.

This program will feature an account of this trip, including the grim plight of the Rohingya. He will give an assessment of the role of Aung San Suu Kyi, and the international response, including how the U.S. administration has and has not responded.
