Description:

NUCHR is honored to have Paul Rusesabagina as the opening keynote of our 15th annual conference “Do You Remember?”. Mr. Rusesabagina is a Rwandan humanitarian, best known for protecting 1,268 Hutu and Tutsi refugees in the Hôtel des Mille Collines in Kigali where he worked as a concierge. His heroism served as inspiration for the Academy Award-nominated film Hotel Rwanda. Please join us to hear Mr. Rusesabagina reflect on the importance of memory in both his and human rights work in general. All are welcome to attend.
