In this video, Coconuts TV turns its attention to Burma’s western edge, where the Rohingya Muslims of Arakan State are facing a relentless drive to erase them from the country’s history.

Crowded into camps since religious clashes in 2012 claimed dozens of lives and thousands of homes, some 140,000 Rohingya face an uncertain future, while one man strives to preserve their past.
