Annual CHHANGE Collloquium: Romeo Dallaire

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights, and Genocide Education presents its 32nd Annual Colloquium, featuring Lt. General Romeo Dallaire of the United Nations. 

Lt. General Dallaire was eyewitness to genocide as Commander of the United Nations forces on the ground during the genocide in Rwanda. Despite his pleas to the UN and governments worldwide, the international community failed to intervene and stop the murder of 800,000 innocent victims. Dallaire’s experiences in Rwanda led to his becoming a globally recognized activist today. 

Yannick Tona, Rwandan survivor and human rights activist, will introduce Dallaire. Tona will share the story of his family’s struggle to survive the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, the lessons he learned from seeing prejudice in its most extreme form, and his subsequent determination to make the world a better place. 

The Colloquium is open to all, and will be held in the Robert J. Collins Arena on Brookdale’s Lincroft campus. There is a $5 general admission fee. For additional details, contact Cynthia Gruskos at 732-224-1889 or e-mail cgruskos@brookdalecc.edu
