Dallas Holocaust Museum presents 2014 Upstander Speaker Series: Philip Gourevitch
As part of its continuing commitment to human rights and the ending of silence and indifference to the suffering of others, the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance will present the 2014 Upstander Speaker Series.
Philip Gourevitch is a nationally known journalist and author whose book We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families reports on the Rwanda genocide. Building upon his knowledge of the genocide, Mr. Gourevitch now focuses on its aftermath and Rwanda's efforts to rebuild the country through both accountability and reconciliation. Through this work he brings and immediacy and present-day context to the urgent questions raised by the Holocaust, genocide and man's inhumanity to man.
Gourevitch is the first of three speakers who will offer remarkable stories of courage, reconciliation, and the power of simple human dignity. Amidst terrible crimes against humanity they bring messages of home by proving that actions do matter, that stopping atrocities is possible, and that change for better will happen if we stand up.
