Once-in-a-lifetime: Here are photos showing the world’s rare albino people in the midst of xenophobia and discrimination

This is in what conditions these incredibly beautiful albino people lived

Albinism is one of the rarest and once-in-a-lifetime conditions. The disease is heritadory and occurs in only one of 20 thousand people in North America and Europe. Those who suffer this genetic disorder in most cases possess light skin and fair hair. In past, people with such a disease were believed to be extraordinary. Others were afraid of them, even mocked and treated them in a cruel and violent way. For example, Shamans and Healers held the opinion that their flesh contained some magical properties. Here are touching and heartbreaking photos revealing how hard albino people’s life actually was and how they lived during discrimination.
