One of the projects of The Research Center for Crimes of Anfal and Genocide is visiting the sufferers of Anfal and other crimes committed against humanity. The incidents are narrated by the sufferers themselves. They have pictures, videos and other evidences of the crimes committed against them. So, the Research Center for Crimes of Anfal and Genocide collects and documents all the evidences of the crimes that happened above 30 years ago. After collecting the data, our center attempts to investigate the cases and do scientific research on them.

Our interview started with a few questions about the survivor's life before the incidents and their jobs and their income. After that, we asked him about the crimes of Anfal: what happened? How many people died? Where did it happen? 

The interview took more than an hour. Then he thanked us and believed that having a center like this is a great step towards identifying Anfal and other crimes that were committed against Kurdish.
