A book testifies of C215 commitment for Rwanda
Christian Guémy, also known as street-artist C215, spend 3 weeks in Rwanda, in August 2015 to paint portraits of righteous people, that is people who saved Hutus during the Genocide against the Tutsis in 1994, that led to the death of more than one million persons. He also portrayed a few survivors saved by these Righteous people.
C215 intends to alert our politicians of the injustice consisting of the non-recognition of the Genocide against the Tutsis by France, particularly considering the implication of the French government at that time.
The EGAM and the CNLG (National Committee to Fight Against Genocide) helped to develop this action, whose final fresco display the portraits and story of the Righteous from Rwanda in Kigali.
The book telling this travel and meetings with Righteous and survivors is to be published in April, on the occasion of the commemoration of the genocide.
