The Baylor University Center for Jewish Studies will show Hotel Rwanda at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, in Room 133 of the Marrs McLean Building. Admission is free. This showing is the fifth and final in a series of films shown in the Holocaust and Genocide Film Series.

This is the first year that the Center for Jewish Studies has hosted the Holocaust and Genocide Film Series. After participants have viewed the films, panel discussions have been facilitated, and the participation has been overwhelming.

"We have had a good response. The turnout has been great and the discussion and interaction between the students has been really good," said Armenian graduate assistant Artyom Tonoyan. "Many of the students have been shocked to learn of the genocide taking place in the world today."

The series began on Jan. 25 with Ararat, and then continued with Rabbit-Proof Fence, The Gray Zone and The Killing Fields.
