Witnessing Genocide: Truth, Reconciliation and the Media


Survivors from the war-torn nations of Rwanda and Darfur, a Holocaust survivor, journalists, and others will converge at Notre Dame on Sunday and Monday, April 6-7 for the conference “Witnessing Genocide: Truth, Reconciliation, and the Media.” The event is co-sponsored by Notre Dame Law School’s Center for Civil and Human Rights, and will be held in McKenna Hall on campus. Juan Méndez, the former special advisor to the United Nations Secretary General, will deliver opening remarks about genocide prevention. Méndez was also director of the Center for Civil and Human Rights from 1999-2004.
