The film chronicles the inspiring journeys of four survivors from four genocides– The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, Congo– whose overpowering will to survive and need to make sense of tragedy lead them to become powerful agents of change in today’s world.
This empowering film will inspire and motivate you. After meeting the amazing and resilient survivors in this film, you will find yourself reinvigorated in your commitment to a world without genocide.

After the Holocaust, the world promised to end genocide, and yet genocide continues to occur. Mike Abramowitz, Director of the Museum’s Committee on Conscience, will discuss his recent trip to South Sudan and the Museum’s efforts to spur global action to prevent genocide and mass atrocities.
In February 2009 Abramowitz joined the Museum’s staff, where he oversees its genocide prevention initiatives. Prior to that, he worked for 24 years as a reporter and editor for the Washington Post, including serving from 2000 to 2006 as National Editor and from 2006 to 2009 as White House Correspondent, where he covered the crisis in Darfur.
This program is free and open to the public but reservations are required; RSVP by April 11 to the Museum’s Western Regional Office at 310.556.3222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
