Join Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust for a talk by Dydine Umunyana, a human rights advocate, author of the memoir Embracing Survival, and revered public speaker. She was only four years old when she was separated from her family during the Rwandan Genocide against Tutsis. Powered by a light spirit and attitude, she has emerged out of a trauma-filled life as a brilliant example of the power of the human spirit to overcome.
Ms. Umunyana was appointed a youth peace Ambassador for the Aegis Trust, an organization dedicated to the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. In 2015, she became a Global Mentor for Peace at Serve to Unite, an organization that cultivates peace through creative service learning and global engagement. Ms. Umunyana is committed to establishing a dialogue between people for understanding their shared histories and cultural differences. Through her writing and public lectures, her goal is to pierce the wall of silence that still pervades much of our society.
