Jonestown, Guyana

A small poster informs visitors to Jonestown, Guyana, "On Nov. 18, 1978, the head of the American evil cult People's Temple, Jim Jones, led more than 900 of his followers, including men, women, the elderly and the young, to ingest poisoned materials and they committed suicide together. The bodies were everywhere; this shocked the world."
