Please join us for “Stories of Survival,” an evening of storytelling and discussion around issues of terror, migration, and resilience, where three survivors will speak of their and their families’ experiences.
Speakers for the event are Dieudonné Manirakiza, whose family fled Burundi when he was 4 and lived in a refugee camp in Tanzania before resettling in the United States; Hazzan Michael Krausman, son of a Holocaust survivor; and Kubra Haidari, who was born in Afghanistan and lived for over five years in a camp in Indonesia before resettling in the United States. Each speaker will share their story and knowledge prior to a question and answer session with the audience. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Laura Alexander of the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
