CRCC’s Donald E. Miller appeared on New Roads, a podcast by the Institute for Armenian Studies at USC. He talks about the oral histories of Rwandan and Armenian genocide survivors, as well as the questioning of faith during atrocities, with Institute Director Salpi Ghazarian.
Regarding trauma and faith finding after the Rwandan genocide, Miller said:
It was in the community of faith that people started to find their identity again. And in that process of finding themselves, they also discovered surrogate parents or surrogate grandchildren, and the world started to make sense to them again. So the moral rupture that had occurred, in some ways they needed a new belief system.
