1994 was the year that the world witnessed one of the gravest acts of violence in recent history. In over just 100 days, more than 15 percent of Rwanda’s population was killed. The sheer scale, speed, calculation, and precision of the genocide of 800,000 of the minority Tutsi and moderate Hutu brought immeasurable devastation to the people of Rwanda. The country was brought to its knees, ravaged by war and mass killing. In all, 70 percent of Rwanda’s Tutsi citizens were wiped out, leaving whole communities ripped apart and the country’s social foundation destroyed.
