The country’s war criminals are leaving behind a trail of shattered hopes and civilian casualties

by NATHANIEL ROSS KELLY

The culture of impunity in South Sudan — the world’s youngest nation — has spawned a civil war with no official body count. While government forces and rebels kill, rape and terrorize civilians, the United Nations refuses to estimate the death toll and ignores sites of mass burials.

Forgotten among the carnage is a new generation of trauma victims, waiting for peace and justice or, at the least, a time and a place to mourn the ones they’ve lost.

Part I — The Bloodiest Conflict No One Is Talking About

Part II — Why the World Ignores South Sudan’s Killing Fields

Part III — South Sudan’s Butchers Are Exempt From Punishment

Part IV — No Time for Tears and No Place for Justice
