Paul Rusesabagina

"Hotel Rwanda: A Lesson Yet to Be Learned"

Underwritten by: Varnum, Riddering, Schmidt & Howlett, LLP

Considered the “Rwandan Schindler,” Paul Rusesabagina risked his life and the lives of his family to shelter more than 1200 people as his country fell into the grips of genocide in 1994. His wrenching story and that of the genocide is now chronicled in the critically acclaimed film, Hotel Rwanda. Through emotionally stirring words, he will share his story first-hand, as a wake-up call to the international community in hopes that future events of this type can be prevented.
