Fleeing Atrocities:
Witness Perspectives
Public Program

As the world grapples with the most refugees since World War II, the voices of individuals driven from their homes highlight the human dimensions of persecution and displacement. Meet a Holocaust survivor and an eyewitness to the conflict in Syria who will share their experiences. Hearing their stories prompts us to consider our obligation to those threatened by mass atrocities today.

Featured Speakers
Alfred Munzer, Holocaust Survivor 
Mouaz Moustafa, Syrian Immigrant and Executive Director, Syrian Emergency Task Force

Naomi Kikoler, Deputy Director, Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide
