Join us as we gather with survivors of the Holocaust and the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda to commemorate Yom HaShoah and Kwibuka 27.

As they discuss memory, healing, and the role educating the next generation has played in their relationship with trauma, survivors Celine Uwineza (Kigali) and Maritza Shelley (New York) will invite us to find common ground between communities that have survived genocide.

This event is presented in partnership with The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village and the Genocide Survivors Foundation.

Public programming at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; a Humanities New York CARES Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act; and other generous donors.
