The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre in partnership with the High Commission of Rwanda in Pretoria invite you to commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the 1994 genocide targeting the Tutsi in Rwanda.

Join us for a special screening of “Rising from Ashes”.

Two worlds collide when cycling legend Jonathan “Jock” Boyer moves to Rwanda to help the first Rwandan National Cycling Team in their six year journey to compete in the Olympic Games. Against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.

The programme will include short remarks by H.E. Ambassador Vincent Karega (High Commission of Rwanda), Tali Nates (Director of the JHGC), as well as survivor testimonies and lighting of candles.

Jonathan “Jock” Boyer will be our keynote speaker.
