Defying Genocide

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has a video channel at YouTube and it is an incredibly valuable resource.  Many of these videos can be seen as you walk around the genocide exhibit in the top levels of the museum in Washington DC. 

I had the honour of meeting Carl Wilkens and the brother of Damas Gisimba, Jean-Francois Gisimba this week and am presently writing up a report of that.  This video, in three parts, is especially important because it reminds us that people can make a difference.  They can stand up in the face of mass murder and mass madness.

"In every case of genocide through out history people have risked, even lost their lives to help others.  These individuals defy genocide”.
