Whenever genocide has occurred, individuals have risked their own lives to save others. How can their courage inspire us to defy genocide?
This video features a conversation with Simone Weil Lipman who was able to save thousands of Jewish children during the Holocaust, and Damas Gisimba, director of a small orphanage in Rwanda that was besieged by militias during the 1994 genocide. Learn more about Weil Lipman and her story, and how Gisimba, with the help of American aid worker Carl Wilkens, managed to protect, care for, and save the lives of some 400 Rwandans.
