Nuremberg to Kigali - seeking justice in AfricaOrigins Centre
Origins Centre will host a lecture on September 4 entitled ‘From Nuremberg to Kigali – seeking justice in Africa’.
The speaker is Tali Nates, director of the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre.
The lecture is in keeping with the theme of the museum's current temporary exhibition, 'A Just Society', a collection of art by Madelaine Georgette inspired by the Truth & Reconciliation Commission. The exhibition runs until September 29.
The list of human rights horrors on our continent goes on and on … Rwanda, Darfur, Sudan; names like Omar Al-Bashir and Liberia’s Charles Taylor. The lecture will explore different models of justice used in the wake of atrocities and genocide, it will share testimonies and stories of survivors and perpetrators, and it will examine the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the Gacaca courts which ended recently in June.
Nates has lectured internationally on genocide prevention, reconciliation and human rights. She has published extensively and has been involved in the production of documentary films. Born to a family of Holocaust survivors, her father and uncle were saved by Oskar Schindler.
