VisionTV Presents The Human Rights Series
A series of documentary specials exposing mass atrocities, religious persecution and intolerance around the world.
Executive Producer: Moses Znaimer

Fear. Hatred. Misconceptions. Lies. Distrust. Amongst our world’s rich kaleidoscope of cultures, ethnicity and faiths, these all factor in to why one group of human beings may revile and persecute another. VisionTV’s HUMAN RIGHTS SERIES is a compendium of hard-hitting, shocking, enlightening and ultimately hopeful documentaries exploring and shedding light on the dark corners of religion and ethnicity-based hatred and violence.

Coinciding with the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, we encored and premiered this group of documentary specials exposing ongoing and increasing mass atrocities, religious persecution and intolerance around the world. Watch video, see pictures and find out more below.

Facing Extremism

On the surface an Islamic terrorist, white supremacist, honour killer and violent right-to-lifer would seem to share little in common, but through the exchange of stories from perpetrators and victims of hate crimes and terrorism, we find out what goes into the making of any extremist, and into breaking that mindset. Experts on the psychology of extremism help us tie these divergent stories together. We don’t take sides that support or condemn any belief or political cause, but simply share the stories to gain new insight into the pathology of extremism and ways to stop the hate.
