Rate this:
After World War I, Belgium took control of Rwanda from a defeated Germany and promoted the rule of the Tutsi tribe over the entire country. The 1959 Rwandan Revolution saw Hutu activists force more than 100,000 Tutsi into neighboring countries. Violence began again when the country gained its independence in 1962. The repression continued for decades, but economic growth lessened the violence. Over 100 days in 1994, the Rwandan Genocide killed 500,000 to 1,000,000 Tutsi and politically moderate Hutu. This episode looks at what has happened in the country since then. A Rwandan wedding ceremony and the birth of new families demonstrates the progress in healing old wounds. Also featured, is an interview with Ken Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. Roth discusses the impact of the war crimes tribunals in Rwanda and around the world.
