  • After the Genocide

    Gourevitch takes a look at the state-sanctioned killings in Rwanda which accumulated at nearly three times the rate of Jewish dead during the Holocaust. Members of the Hutu majority group began massacring the Tutsi minority in early April and at the end of the month dead Tutsis were easier to find in Rwanda than live Tutsis. That October a United Nations Commission of Experts found that the concerted, planned, systematic and methodical acts of mass extermination by Hutu elements against the Tutsi group constitute genocide.
