DYDINE UMUNYANA 

SURVIVOR OF THE RWANDAN GENOCIDE AGAINST THE TUTSIS AND AUTHOR OF EMBRACING SURVIVAL

Thursday, May 27, 2021 │1:00 PM PT │ 4:00 PM ET

A survivor of the Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsis, Dydine Umunyana was four years old and separated from her family as the genocide began.

From barely surviving the genocide to living in Rwanda amidst the perpetrators in the aftermath, Dydine Umunyana has found ways to become a strong, resilient young woman.

In her riveting memoir, Embracing Survival, she writes: "I have learned that we cannot do for others what we cannot do for ourselves. By nourishing the light within ourselves, we find strength we never knew was there..."

Copies of Embracing Survival will be available to order.
