"Children at a crowded school inside a displaced persons camp in Juba, South Sudan. The country's capital — and the whole country, for that matter — has slid far from where its people dreamed it would go. The Republic of #SouthSudan is not even 5 years old, but already 50,000 people have been killed in an ethnically driven civil war. Juba's displaced persons camp is on the city's outskirts, not far from the homes of many camp dwellers, who once lived less than 2 miles away. They fled at the outbreak of the civil war, and even now they say they will be killed if they try to return. People living in the camp have little to do except mourn their losses – the loss of family, the loss of homes, the loss of freedom, the loss of hope. The @nytimes staff photographer Tyler Hicks took this photo while on #nytassignment. Visit the link in our profile to read the full story." By nytimes on Instagram.
