Brookdale Community College
Main Academic North (MAN) 105
In 100 days in the Spring of 1994, 900,000 Rwandan people were murdered, many by friends and neighbors. Consolee Nishimwe, a teenager at the time, struggled to survive the genocide. Her father, brothers, and friends were murdered.
Consolee will share testimony about her life in Rwanda, her experience during the genocide, and reflect upon how she and her mother each faced life following genocide.
Now living in New York City, Consolee is featured in the Rwandan section of Chhange's exhibit, Journeys Beyond Genocide: The Human Experience.
Please consider lighting a virtual flame in honor or memory of loved ones. Candles are $18 and support Chhange programming.
