Children’s concentration camp art: this drawing by a child of the McAllen, Texas children’s concentration camp resonates with the drawings of Palestinian children after Israeli bombing & massacres. We can’t even imagine what Kashmiri, Rohingya, Uyghur & other persecuted children would draw if they were asked. Art is used as therapy to help children express the trauma they feel. But expressing their fear & loss cannot exorcise the emotional, psychological, & spiritual damage that persecution does to their fragile souls.
These drawings are a clarion call, not just to oppose & stop the US concentration camps for children & other refugees but to demand immigration & refugee rights all over the world.
