Look at this photo... Survivor Gilbert Jean, 93, survived the Dominican Parlsey massacre (Spanish: el corte) that was carried out in October 1937 against Haitians living in the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican Parlsey massacre was carried out by Dominican Army troops on the direct orders of Dictator Rafael Trujillo.
