The exhibition, Surviving Genocide: The Children of Darfur ran from February 13 to March 13 at the Bushnell Center for Performing Arts and The Concourse of the Legislative Office Building from March 15-March 30. This exhibit of children's drawings was created by Dr. Jerry Ehrlich's patients, the youngest survivors of the Sudanese humanitarian crisis, depicting the tragedies they saw in the Darfur region of western Sudan. Dr. Ehrlich, who served as a volunteer in Doctors Without Borders, asked his young patients to draw pictures of their lives. These children witnessed murder, rape and the burning of their homes and villages. The result is a collection of drawings of the horror faced by these children of Darfur and photographs taken by Dr. Ehrlich.
