I’m Not Leaving

Friday, September 10, 2021 – 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (AZ)
A VIRTUAL SEMINAR

SPEAKER: Rwandan Genocide Upstander, Carl Wilkens

Why did Carl Wilkens decide to remain in Rwanda in 1994, with a genocide swirling around him? How did he and his wife Teresa maintain communication during the one-hundred days of terror when Tutsis were being hounded to death by Hutu militia extremists? How does the only American who chose to stay-in order to protect two Tutsi household workers-look back on that fearful time? In this seminar Carl reconstructs in fascinating detail both personal and political events triggered by the April 6 plane crash assassination of the Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi. He takes us through the poignant good-bye to his family, as they join the mass exodus of expatriates leaving this dangerous situation; the horrors of Rwandan Genocide.
