National Commission for Remembrance
Iraq Fact of the Day

A new commission will soon develop ways to commemorate those who suffered from the atrocities committed by Saddam Hussein's regime. The Iraqi National Commission for Remembrance will raise private funds to establish memorials and a national museum in Baghdad. The museum will pay homage to the of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis who were victimized by Saddam's dictatorship. Mindful of this tragic history, Iraqis are committed to building a government that respects the human rights of all its people.
