Syria’s civil war erupted five years ago in the summer of 2011. According to Al Jazeera, it is the deadliest conflict of the 21st century thus far. To put that into perspective, the United Nations estimated the death toll to be a quarter of a million people as of last August. But that’s a fraction of the people who have fled the violence in Syria. The BBC puts the number of displaced people at 11 million. And all sides in this conflict have engaged in war crimes -- torture, rape, kidnapping… Public amputations of fingers, hands, feet – and gruesome executions are commonplace.
