Rwanda genocide

by: D4AKSA and JJ


Rwanda whole country have about 7 millions people. in those people, they were devided in to 2 groups, the Tutsi and the Hutu. The country was increasing social, economic, and political pressures

how it started

Th hutu blamed the Tutsi from making the country more social. The Hutu doesnt liked it and so they wanted to give revenge. thats when the violence attack over time. in April 6th 1994, the Hutu planned to attack the entire population of Tutsi.

the battle

The population of the hutu was 85% of the entire country and the Tutsi had 14% of the country. in April 1994, 800,000 men and human are killed

The citizens

Citizen who was neutral ( not on both sides ) were scarred of the war. as again 800,000 people are dead no matter you are part of the Hutu, Tutsi or neutral. most of the citizen migrates from the country to keep their family safe.
Rwanda: What led to the genocide that occurred in 1994?


The battle begins in the cental of Rwanda which the Hutu and the Tutsi were there. it soon spread out to the whole country and getting more violence. the main point in the central of Rwanda is in Kidali where it happen the war the most

The Hutu was the main cause who started the problem that they dissagree for their country to increase social. The Tutsi was the main point or the target. The Tutsi was doing the right thing to make the country more social but was dissagreed by the Hutu.

A VERY Short History of Rwanda

other country response

france, belgium and the US were concerned about the genocide and spread. The Tutsi was being blamed for the genocide and they were being targeted.


  • the Tutsi have 14% of the country and the Hutu had 85% of the country.
  • Kigali was the main city or central city where the war begins
  • it took only 100 days until the was ended
  • 800,000 men and woman are killed in 1994
  • it started by the Tutsi from getting the country more social and the Hutu doesnt liked it

Letter in 1995

I arrived in Rwanda for the first time in early May of 1995, a year after the genocide. The country was gutted. Between those who were dead and those who had fled, Rwandans spoke of their country as empty. Its infrastructure was trashed. The Hutu Power political, military, and militia forces that had carried out the genocide had reëstablished themselves as a rump state along Rwanda’s borders in camps catered by the United Nations and international aid agencies. In Kigali, the capital, the Rwandese Patriotic Front, the rebel army that had been waging a civil war in Rwanda since 1990, and that had brought the genocide to a halt, had established a rough control. But it was immediately clear that the violence that was unleashed in 1994 was far from spent. The United Nations peacekeeping force that had done nothing to stop the genocide had been given a beefed-up mandate after the slaughter—to help stabilize the country—but the only thing the R.P.F. wanted the U.N. to do was leave. The prisons and jails were packed to bursting with accused génocidaires. There were revenge killings. And two weeks before I arrived, on a hill called Kibeho, the Army had killed several thousand men, women, and children during an operation to close down a camp for internally displaced people—a move that clearly foreshadowed what could happen on a much larger scale, and what did happen, in 1996, when Rwanda went into neighboring Congo (then called Zaire) to disband the U.N. camps there. etc

letter in 2009 (after war)

I didn’t visit Rwanda again until New Year’s Day, 2009—nearly a decade after my last trip, and a few months ahead of the commemoration of the fifteenth anniversary of the genocide. The country had progressed immensely and was becoming known as much for its recovery as for its near annihilation. Rwanda had come back to life in a way that nobody could have imagined when I first visited.

But what does reconciliation mean after such extreme communal violence and so much absolute betrayal of neighbors by neighbors? I went back to visit a killer I had first met in 1996 as well as the survivors of his victims. He had been convicted and released by the community genocide court because he confessed, but he was hardly the picture of repentance, and the survivors were far from wholeheartedly forgiving. Like everyone in Rwanda told me then, they said they lived in peace side by side because they had to.
