Rwanda Genocide Rwanda Genocide Presentation Transcript

  • In 1994 a small country in Africa was torn apart by genocide. About 1,000,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed. No place wassafe, and only a lucky few survived to tell about it. This horror happened in Rwanda. It all happened in about 100 days.
  • Rwanda is about the size of Maryland http://www.anngarrison.com/audio/ingabire-trial-opening-in-rwanda
  • Rwanda’s population is about 85% Hutu, 14% Tutsi, and 1% Twa (aboriginal pygmies).
  • When Belgium wanted to colonizeRwanda, they thought it would be easiest if they could divide the people. They declared the Tutsisto be superior and the Hutus to be inferior.
  • Hutus and Tutsis shared the same language and culture, grew up together, and intermarried.
  • Most Hutus and Tutsis could not tell each other apart, but they were given identity cards.
  • Tutsis enjoyed better jobs andeducation, but when the Belgiansleft they put the Hutus in charge. Unrest followed. The 1994 genocide was not the first time Rwandans killed Rwandans.
