President Kagame joined eminent Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel for a conversation on genocide and the role of the strong in protecting the weak held at New York University. The panel moderated by Rabbi Shmuley discussed both the Genocide against the Tutsi and the Holocaust.

Introduced as “the only man on earth who can claim to have stopped a Genocide”, President Kagame spoke on the role of the international community during the Genocide against the Tutsi :
“Genocide in Rwanda was seen as the usual, savage reaction by Africans. The message from the outside to those of us who were trying to stop the genocide was to try and restrain.”

President Kagame shared that the international community’s choice to turn its back on Rwanda was not the first time and has taught Rwanda a lesson :
“What we learnt along the way was not to blame others for what happened. We learned to take responsibility for ourselves. If we wasted time thinking about what others are able to do for us, we would not have been able to bring Genocide to an end.”

President Kagame pointed to Rwanda’s involvement in peacekeeping as a result of its history :
“We try to do the best we can for ourselves and for others who find themselves in the same situation.”

In addition to the responsibility to protect in times of genocide, the panelists discussed the aftermath of genocide including what is often referred to as the eighth stage of Genocide : genocide denial.

Responding to a question from Rabbi Shmuley referring to Paul Rusesabagina as one of the deniers of the Genocide Against the Tutsi and Elie Wiesel shared his views :
"They are not worthy of a dialogue."

The panel discussion was a prelude to the 20th Anniversary of the Genocide Against the Tutsi and was held at the New York University Bronfman Center and was attended by over 800 members of the NYU Community and prominent Jewish philanthropists including Adelson Sheldon and Michael Steinhardt.
