The Panzi Foundation continues their North American Holocaust museum tour of the exhibition Peace Should not be This Fragile: A Portrait of Panzi, featuring Brookie Maxwell, Peter Franz and others.
Congratulations to the Panzi Foundation for raising over $1,000,000 to date! We are so proud to be a part of this project. If you’re in Winnipeg, MB, please attend the opening for Right Her Future on March 27, 2014 and meet the founder of the Panzi Hospital Dr. Denis Mukwege. Local Congolese performers will also be featured, it should be awesome!
Swimming to Rwanda
During the week of August 19th, I will attempt to swim from Europe to Africa by crossing the Strait of Gibraltar. Swimming 12-14 miles (depending on the currents) exceeds any swim I have undertaken, but I am eager to join the ranks of the fewer than 400 swimmers who have successfully crossed the Strait without a wetsuit.
I am swimming to raise support for Voices Of Rwanda, a video archive dedicated to bringing testimonies of rescapés of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi to high schools, Universities, museums, and research institutions around the globe.
Please watch Claudine (in the link to the right), a rescapée, as she recalls what became of her childhood, and what swimming means to her.
If you are moved to contribute, I would really appreciate it.Sincerely Yours,Taylor Krauss
Executive Director, Voices of Rwanda
