In NO PLACE ON EARTH award winning photojournalist Patrick Brown has documented the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis and one of the most rapid human displacements in recent history. Risking death at sea or on foot, more than 700,000 Rohingya fled the destruction of their homes and brutal persecution in the northern Rakhine State of Myanmar for neighboring Bangladesh. Arriving at makeshift camps, most refugees reported consistent stories of murder and rape, all of which testify to a deliberate campaign of eradication. NO PLACE ON EARTH includes personal testimony from survivors and provides a harrowing account of what they endured.Essays about the genocide by journalist Jason Motlagh and human rights campaigner Mathew Smith add description and depth to the Browns powerful photography. The book includes children’s drawings depicting helicopter gunships raining bombs and bullets on their burning villages. The drawing are accompanied by a short commentary from Peter Bouckaert, former emergencies director for Human Rights Watch.
