Commemorating the Rwanda Genocide

April 23, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free
Kigali Memorial Center

This year marked the twentieth anniversary of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda—a systematic, nationwide attempt to exterminate the country’s Tutsi minority. Up to 1 million people were killed in only 100 days.

On April 23, at 6:30 pm, in the Barbieri Courtroom at Gonzaga Law School, Law Professors Cheryl Beckett and Mary Pat Treuthart, and Adjunct Professor and Federal Defender Jaime Hawk, will screen award-winning documentarian Anne Aghion’s film, My Neighbor My Killer. This film is the fourth in a series chronicling rural Rwanda’s efforts at post-genocide ethnic reconciliation. Beckett, Treuthart, and Hawk have all traveled in Rwanda meeting with various officials, organizations, and individuals. Following the film, they will lead an open discussion.
