Inspired by the Kigali Genocide Memorial in Rwanda, we seek to create a Room of Remembrance where conference attendees can learn about and reflect upon the individual tragedy of genocide by viewing hundreds of victims photos.  Video testimonies of the survivors of genocide will also be streamed online in this room during the conference.

Finally, conference attendees will be given with their program the photograph of a genocide victim.  They will then be encouraged to visit the Room of Remembrance where they can read the biography of the individual in that photo.  What do we know about that individual's personal history?  Did they survive?
