Yazidis, from a forgotten name to an Ongoing Genocide.


The genocide has led to the expulsion, flight and effective exile of the Yazidi people from their ancestral lands in Northern Iraq. The genocide led to the abduction of Yazidi women and massacres that killed at least 5,000 Yazidi civilians and training of 1000s of children during what has been called a "forced conversion campaign" being carried out in Northern Iraq by ISIS. Yet, the genocide is ongoing according to UN human rights reports.




ISIS's actions against the Yazidi population resulted in approximately 500,000 refugees.
