Horror photos from inside Syria's torture chambers go on display at US Holocaust Museum as war crimes prosecutor calls Bashar al-Assad's regime 'an industrial killing machine not seen since the Nazis'

  • WARNING: GRAPHIC, DISTURBING CONTENT 
  • The photos in the US Holocaust Museum are part of a collection of 27,000 smuggled out of Syria by a former photographer for the regime 

A collection of horrific photos taken inside Bashar al-Assad's Syrian torture chambers is going on display at the US Holocaust Museum. 

The pictures show dozens of mangled, emaciated corpses of men who were starved, strangled, shot, beaten and tortured to death at the hands agents working for the Syrian president. 

One veteran civil rights prosecutor said the pictures document 'an industrial killing machine not seen since the Holocaust,' Yahoo News reports. 

Stephen Rapp, the US ambassador-at-large for war crimes, told Yahoo that the photos are 'some of the strongest evidence we've seen in the area of proof of the commission of mass atrocities.'

The images are part of a cache of 27,000 pictures that were smuggled out of Syria by 'Caesar,' a photographer with the Syrian military police who defected after documenting the brutality of al-Assad's regime. 

'Caesar,' who is currently in hiding in Europe, was tasked with documenting deaths in government custody by the Syrian military. 

His pictures show unimaginable horror. Eyes gouged out. Hands bound. Bodies so emaciated from starvation that ribs poke through the skin. Men who died from being stabbed, strangled, shot or beaten. 

 

An estimated 100,000 civilians have been killed since the Syrian people rose up against Assad, who has ruled the country with an iron fist since taking power from his father in 2000. 

Before the country broke into all-out civil war, the Assad regime's secret police and military abducted many thousands of protesters and tortured them to death.

David Crane, a former war crime prosecutor who worked in Sierra Leone and interviewed 'Caesar,' compared the atrocities in Syria to those committed by the Nazi in the Holocaust. 

 

US Congressman Ed Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called Caesar to testify in front of his committee in July. He made the same grim comparison, telling Yahoo News: 'my father had taken photos at Dachau when it was liberated, of the bodies stacked up at the ovens. This is eerily reminiscent. It's absolutely appalling.'

The Holocaust Museum, which is in Washington, DC, has previously spoken out about the unspeakable human rights violations in Syria. In February, the museum sent a delegation of observers to Jordan to record the horror conditions faced by refugees fleeing war-torn Syria.

Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it dbdkgfedkfcg

At the beginning of the conflict I was told by a Syrian speaker at an Amnesty International demonstration that it was safe to contact people I had known in Syria from long before. I felt suspicious. One of the terrible things about such dictatorships is the retribution that can be visited on even mild associations with someone from abroad, as it was in the USSR or Nazi Germany and is now in North Korea. I would wish for a list of names of the dead and disappeared. This might enable rescue of those alive from various families. But these photographs show how the country has descended into barbarism and suggests that any form of contact even if once possible now carries with it the likelihood of insane response. Daesh is openly mad, Assad's psychopathism is hidden in the folds of detention blocks, secret prisons and death camps. This is terrible. There will be no justice either.
