Eyewitness to Genocide Workshop for Faculty and Students

The Institute for Holocaust Education presents “Journey to the World Outside My Shoes: A Lesson from the Inside of Rwanda and Seeing the Experience through New Eyes,” with Carl Wilkens on Tuesday, March 17, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Harper Center, room 3023. A light dinner will be served.

Wilkens is the former head of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency International in Rwanda. In 1994, Wilkens was the only American who chose to remain in Rwanda when the genocide began. His choice to stay and help resulted in preventing the massacre of hundreds of children over the course of the genocide.

Creighton University cosponsors for this workshop are the Justice and Peace Studies Program, Department of Education, the Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society, and the Klutznik Chair in Jewish Civilization.
