African Great Lakes Region Initiative at the USF Libraries Holocaust and Genocide Studies Center


How can we stop hate and prevent future atrocities from taking place? How are survivors of the conflicts in the African Great Lakes region coping with daily life after the horrific violence their communities suffered?

For survivors of genocide and crimes against humanity in Rwanda, Darfur, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Kenya, the effects still linger.

Communities coping with the aftermath of these atrocities have much to offer researchers, teachers, and mental health professionals. Yet challenges remain for future generations.

How can we prevent future atrocities?

Faculty and students at USF and around the world rely on eyewitness and other documentary materials to engage in deeper inquiry into genocide and crimes against humanity in this region.

Established in 2008, the Center is becoming an internationally recognized institute for the quality of its collections, research, teaching, and community outreach.
