Qatar opens Slavery Museum

Visitors are welcomed to Quatar’s Slave Museum with a quote by America President Abraham Lincoln “ If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

Located in Bin Jelmood house in Doha, this is Qatar’s way of reminding visitors about the evils of slavery, which surprisingly still exists.
