frontline: ghosts of rwanda | PBS
Tens years ago today, genocide of unimaginable scale commenced in the African country of Rwanda. In one week, 64,000 children, women and male civilians would be hacked and otherwise murdered. In another half week, 100,000 would be dead. After 3 weeks, the murders of the innocent would pass 170,000.

Yet the world stood by.

After 100 days (July 17), 800,000 children, mothers, fathers, grandparents would be brutally slain.

I beg you to watch the timeline in its entirety.
