Adath Shalom Synagogue commemorates the 30th remembrance of the 1994 Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsis in Rwanda with survivor Provie Umugwaneza. Provie will share not only her personal story of survival, but also the wisdom and lessons that she learned firsthand about the dangers of hate and extremism in the modern era.

Provie is a child Survivor of the Genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda of 1994 that claimed more than a million innocent lives in a span of 100 days, including her parents and five siblings. Her uncles and aunts and their families along with their neighbors were completely wiped out. She was 11. She is the first Rwandan and the youngest ever to be appointed to serve on the Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission in Texas. She is currently working with schools across Texas public libraries and churches/temples, where she shares a story of hope and a willingness to do all that it takes to assure that her community aspires to join forces to practice tolerance & stand up for a positive change and peace.
