Ira Glass Moderates Anti-Genocide Event in NYC

May 14, 2013

Ira here. I'm hosting an event in New York for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum this coming Wednesday, May 22nd. Tickets are pricey — they're raising money — but they have me interviewing some incredible people onstage. Eugenie Mukeshimana is a survivor of the Rwandan genocide; Thomas Buergenthal was in Auschwitz as a boy; with a remarkable lack of bitterness about the past, he went on to become a judge at the International Criminal Court of Justice in The Hague. Funds raised will support the Museum's Center for the Prevention of Genocide.
