Committee on Conscience

U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
Bridget Conley-Zilkic – Project Director
"The 1994 genocide in Rwanda illustrated the absolute worst in humanity — not only in how it was perpetrated, but also in how the people of Rwanda were abandoned by the world. Against this horrible history, the brave and honorable decision of Carl Wilkens to stay and help stands out as a glimmer of hope for everyone, then and now." B. Conley-Zilkic
