Western Sahara War memorial museum

The conflict between the Sahrawi people led by the Polisario front against the Moroccan government for control of Western Sahara has spanned over 4 decades, making this Africa’s longest running territorial dispute and now exist entire generations who have grown up in the camps with no direct observation of the war for the liberation of their homeland. The armed conflict came to a halt in 1991 with a UN brokered ceasefire and the promise of a referendum for the Sahrawis' to potentially gain their independence, however this was never delivered.
