The Skirball Cultural Center presents a talk by Paul Rusesabagina, the subject of the film Hotel Rwanda.
Ten years ago, as the country of Rwanda descended into chaos and brutality, Paul Rusesabagina made a promise to protect the family he loved--and ended up finding the courage to save more than 1200 people. Over the course of 100 days, almost one million people were killed in Rwanda.
Rusabagina's wrenching story and that of the genocide he witnessed was chronicled in the critically accalimed film Hotel Rwanda. Now, through emotionally stirring words, he shares his story firsthand, in hopes that future events of this type can be prevented.
