On Surviving the Rwandan Genocide—2017 GLS Faculty Spotlight

Immaculée Ilibagiza not only survived the horrific Rwandan genocide, but emerged as a fierce advocate for peace and reconciliation. We are honored to be able to learn from her experience at the Global Leadership Summit in 2017.

 This 3½-minute video takes us into her story.

  

 Immaculée Ilibagiza is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide that took the lives of nearly one million Tutsi, including her entire family, except for one brother. She survived by huddling silently with seven other women in a 3-by-4-foot bathroom for 91 days. Desite unimaginable suffering, she committed herself to a life of peace, hope and forgiveness. Ilibagiza works with the United Nations and is the best-selling author of Left to Tell.

 


Guest faculty members are invited to participate in The Global Leadership Summit based on proven leadership abilities in their field of expertise. Their beliefs may not necessarily reflect those of Willow Creek Association and Willow Creek Community Church, and their presence at the Summit does not imply blanket endorsement of their views or affiliations.
