Genocide in the 21st Century: The Continued Impact of Darfur

Nick Clooney in Sudan

Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 4:30pm – 7:30pm

 The American Red Cross

2111 Dana Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45207

Refreshments and Contact Hours will be provided!

Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in partnership with the Cincinnati Chapter of the American Red Cross to examine the continued impact of the genocide in Darfur and atrocities in South   Sudan. Unlike previous genocides, Darfur was the first of the digital age with satellite images and text messaging blowing the whistle. As with other examples of atrocity, among the horror, there was also the good. Anti-genocide youth movements used social media to demand the US government take action.

 Join us to discuss how to incorporate technology and media in our discussions on contemporary genocide as well as how it can be used to engage and empower our students.

AN EVENING WITH CARL WILKENS

Thursday, February 27th, 4:30pm – 8pm

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

50 E. Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202

  

Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center to explore the history of the Rwandan genocide and America’s response-or lack there of. Then we will hear the testimony of Carl Wilkens, an eyewitness to the atrocities who is dedicated to making genocide an event of the past. Teachers will explore this history with fellow educators from throughout the area and receive hands-on resources to bring back into their classrooms.

As a humanitarian aid worker, Wilkens moved his family to Rwanda in 1990. When the genocide began in April 1994, Carl refused to leave, even when urged to do so by his church and the US government. He was one of the few Americans to remain.

“Stories are our most powerful weapons…they have the potential to end a fight with two winners.”
