Emmanuel Habimana Keynotes

Genocide in Rwanda:
Lessons learned and forgotten after 25 years


Through many years of struggle after being orphaned at 9-years-old by
the genocide in Rwanda, Emmanuel Habimana found solace by pursuing
his education and
in helping others. General Romeo Dallaire, the
Commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda in
1994,
supported Emmanuel's efforts with a scholarship to study in the
US.  Today, Mr. Habimana is an independent filmmaker and activist
who has dedicated his life to speaking about human rights and the consequences of mass atrocities. His testimony of surviving genocide
in Rwanda is told throughthe film Komora: To Heal, which
he co-directed. General Dallaire alsoappears in and supports the
film content. Through his work, Mr. Habimana educates communities
about the horrors of genocide and how orphans and other survivors
have coped with the consequences. He holds a bachelor’s degree from
The Los Angeles Film School and is currently working on a film project that examines the concept of forgiveness in the aftermath of mass violence in different countries around the world.
