The well-presented displays here tell a very strong story of the suffering inflicted by the US bombings in the 60s and 70s and the repercussion of those up to the present day. COPE is working hard to support the victims in very practical ways.

Watch some of their documentaries that are played regularly. They give the exhibitions a deeper meaning. Everything's explained in proper english.
