A Stark Reminder Of Genocide On The Mall

WASHINGTON - They may only be made of clay, plaster and paper, but the scene of a million "human" bones laid on the grounds of the National Mall this weekend is causing quite a stir.

Hundreds of volunteers joined the One Million Bones (OMB) organization Saturday to create a symbolic mass grave of bones, in an effort to draw attention to genocide.

"The thing is, a lot of people don't know," says artist Naomi Natale, the project leader. "What we hope is that this is not only a way to introduce them to what's happening, but connect them emotionally to what's happening."
