Upstander Speaker Series

The Upstander Speaker Series, presented by the Dallas Holocaust Museum, consists of three lectures held throughout the year featuring speakers who will offer remarkable stories of courage, reconciliation and the power of simple human dignity. The first in the series, to be held at SMU’s Hughes-Trigg Student Center Thursday at 6:30 p.m., features speaker Philip Gourevitch. The nationally known journalist and author’s award-winning book, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, is considered one of the best accounts of the Rwandan genocide and its consequences. Gourevitch will examine how 20 years later, many survivors and perpetrators of the genocide are living peacefully side by side. Admission is $10; no charge for Museum members and SMU students with ID. Email communications@DallasHolocaustMuseum.org to reserve a seat.
