For her Cube portrait, Power and John Prendergast, founder of the Enough Project (enoughproject.org), gathered five genocide survivors: Perouz Kalousdian, a 99-year-old survivor of the Armenian genocide; Bernard Gotfryd, a Holocaust survivor; Sophy Yem, who survived Pol Pot's "killing fields"; Jacqueline Murekatete, who narrowly survived the Rwandan genocide; and Motasim Adam, who escaped the ongoing genocide in Darfur. The green bracelets, which say, "Not on Our Watch," represent the growing strength worldwide of the movement to eliminate genocide.
