Remembering the genocide: What lessons for Kagame's Rwanda?

Ceremonies commemorating the death of an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus in under 100 days are underway in Rwanda. Twenty years later, there's still bitter argument over the build-up, the failure to stop the slaughter, and the humanitarian disaster that ensued. How could such a collective frenzy to wipe out the lives of men, women and children have been sustained over a three-month period?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis

By François PICARD
