Leora Kahn and Proof: Media for Social Justice worked with the Aegis Trust to use “The Rwandan Rescuers’ Project,” an exhibition of photographs and interviews with 25 Hutu rescuers during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, to foster reconciliation and peace-building between Hutu and Tutsi in Rwanda. The exhibition traveled to urban and rural areas of Rwanda, and selected rescuers accompanied the exhibits to facilitate discussions. Local leaders within the community were trained as facilitators.
