Information Quests are brief activities designed for students to view and reflect on an experience from a survivor's testimony.

Here, students will watch parts of the testimony of Kizito Kalima, a survivor of the Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda (1994). They will engage with his story and through his story learn about the experience of surviving genocide.
