Simon Norfolk has photographed sites of genocide. The names ring like a death toll for the 20th century - Rwanda, Cambodia, Vietnam, Auschwitz, Dresden, Ukraine, Armenia, Namibia... Charged with emotional intensity Norfolk's photographs document the human traces left behind: a tooth lying in a field, or the worn steps of a death camp. 9 December 1998 marked the 50th anniversary of the United Nations convention on genocide. With the 20th century now at a close this book is a profound comment on its worst atrocities.
