The Wagner College Holocaust Center, Education Department and History Department will be offering two opportunities for the Wagner community to hear Consolee Nishimwe speak about her experiences during the Rwandan Genocide.
Only 14 years old, Nishimwe went into hiding with her mother, a teacher, and her younger siblings. Her father and brothers did not survive the massacres. She experienced violent trauma, yet encountered goodness among a few neighbors. A gender activist, Nishimwe is the author of Tested to the Limit: A Genocide Survivor’s Story of Pain, Resilience and Hope.
Join the FYP class of Prof. Rita Reynolds and Vanessa Washington-Smith at 1pm-2:30pm in Union 201.
