This week on War News Radio, “Remembrance.” April 7, 2014 marked the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. For this month’s show, we examine numerous perspectives on the Rwandan genocide two decades after it first took place. We hear from a diverse range of voices about the genocide’s causes and consequences and assess the long-ranging impacts of the massacre on the history and identity of the country. First, we discuss the role of justice in the peace and reconciliation process. Next, we interview a student who studied abroad in Rwanda about her experiences living in the country. Finally, we talk to experts about the role of the media in inflaming the genocide. But first, a round-up of this week's news.
