Panoramic from Halabja, Iraq

Halabja is one of the most famous sites of Saddum Hussein's chemical attacks on the Kurdish people. The mass graves were to numerous for me to count let alone take in. Over 5,000 innocent people were killed in one day. In total at least 182,000 Kurds were killed. The aerial attacks seem to somehow be remembered in the clouds.
