Updated: Jun 21, 2018
With turbulence in the world from the United State to Middle East and North Korea, news about the Ronhingya massacres in Myanmar (Burma) and the resultant refugee crisis in Bangladesh does not get the attention it deserves.
But not for Nazda Alam. The longtime Weston, Massachusetts resident and Bangladeshi native traveled to the troubled region last month. She and her son Samuel spent more than two weeks, documenting the horror and injustices being perpetrated with a focus on atrocities against women and girls. The documentary "Rohingya: Atrocities Again Women" is one project of the Nazda Alam Foundation.
