DOCUMENTARY DEPICTS GENOCIDE IN DARFUR AT COLORADO STATE’S 12th ANNUAL HOLOCAUST AWARENESS WEEK

FORT COLLINS – Students for Holocaust Awareness present the
documentary, “The Devil Came on Horseback,” at 7 p.m. March 6 in Room
214-216 Lory Student Center as part of the 12th Annual Holocaust
Awareness Week at Colorado State University. The theme of this year’s
Holocaust Awareness Week is “Whoever Saves One Life, Saves The World
Entire.”

Based on a true story, the 2007 award-winning film depicts the
genocide of black Africans by the Janjaweed militias in Darfur, Sudan,
as seen through the eyes of former U.S. Marine Captain Brian Steidle.

“This documentary plays an important role in raising awareness about
the genocide in Darfur,” said Lilli Welch, treasurer of Students for
Holocaust Awareness. “Our theme demonstrates the importance of
remembering the Holocaust by taking action to save a life and fight
against current genocide.”

“The Devil Came on Horseback” is a Break Thru Films production in
association with Global Grassroots and Three Generations. It was
written and directed by Rikki Stern and Anne Sundberg. The film is not
rated, but contains graphic images of violence.

Holocaust Awareness Week is sponsored by Students for Holocaust
Awareness and Hillel. For more information and a complete list of
