Voices of Rwanda: Genocide through the Eyes of Survivors
In April 1994, genocide broke out in Rwanda. Over the course of 100 days, an estimated 800,000 people were brutally killed by their neighbors with the implicit permission of a passive international community. Today, survivors, bystanders, rescuers, and perpetrators are all searching for ways to live with one another and with their difficult past.
Please join Taylor Krauss, founding director of Voices of Rwanda, for a screening of testimonies of survivors of the 1994 genocide followed by a discussion.
Date: April 27, 2010
Location: Wollman Hall, 65 W. 11th Street, 5th Floor
Reception to follow.
This event is organized by Global Studies, the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies, and the NSSR Interdisciplinary Memory Group.
Voices of Rwanda is dedicated to recording and preserving testimonies of Rwandans, and to ensuring that their stories inform the world about genocide and inspire a global sense of responsibility to prevent human rights atrocities.
