The Armenian Heritage Foundation hosted its annual lecture last night on human rights at Faneuil Hall, featuring international humanitarian Paul Rusesabagina. Paul is perhaps best known as the real life hero of the acclaimed film Hotel Rwanda (played by Don Cheadle) having used his position as hotel manager in Kagali, Rwanda to save 1,268 lives during the Rwandan Genocide. The Foundation is the sponsor of the Armenian Heritage Park currently under construction on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.
