Donate to a Sponsored Project

Shortly after September 11, 2001, Peter Jan Honigsberg, a law professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law, began teaching a class about the war on terror, international security, civil liberties and human rights. The questions raised by this class led him to travel to Guantanamo and also delve deeper into the issues. He published several articles and a University of California Press book entitled A Nation Unhinged: The Human Consequences of the War on Terror. In light of his experiences, his writings, his interactions with former detainees and their attorneys, and the public’s desire for information, Professor Honigsberg was compelled to establish the Witness to Guantanamo (W2G) project.

Witness to Guantanamo gives voice to former detainees and others who have witnessed the impact of the Guantanamo Bay detention center. We offer these compelling stories to promote public dialogue, foster a shared humanity, and inspire future generations to never again repeat the mistakes of Guantanamo.
