The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance will host humanitarian Carl Wilkens as he talks about his fight to protect Rwandans during the 1994 genocide. Despite the U.S. government’s urge for Americans to leave Rwanda, Wilkins was the only American to remain in the country during the genocide. He ventured out daily into gunfire, roadblocks of bloodstained soldiers and civilians armed with firearms in order to bring food, water and medicine to groups of orphans trapped around the city.
