ERHS Memory Project

Eagle River HS Memory Project 2019

This year Mr. Bera's art classes are illustrating the portraits of 50 children who are part of the Rohingya ethnic minority. This group has been called "the most unwanted group of people on Earth". Nearly a million fled genocide in Myanmar last year, and are currently sheltered in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Most families have little more than a few cooking pans and clothes, and have rarely seen images of themselves. You can learn more about the project, and the Rohingya people here:

Be prepared to see beautiful portraits next semester when the final results are unveiled!
