Rwanda Genocide Massacre, annihilation, extermination, these are just some synonyms for the word Genocide. Genocide-the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. When one thinks of mass murder, they think of the Holocaust. A genocide that many people may not know of is the Rwandan genocide, also known as the Genocide against the Tutsi. It was a mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu Majority government in East Central Africa.
On April 06, 1994, Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimara was murdered when his plane was shot down as he returned from diplomatic talks in East Africa. This event, which was later blamed on extremists within Habyariaman’s government, contributed to the triggering of the hundred day long Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsi. The roots of this brutal conflict between the Rwandan tribes, the Hutus and the Tutsis, began many years before, rooted in divisions created by European colonizers. When the Belgians first arrived in Rwanda, they considered the Hutus inferior to the Tutsis, as the Tutsis had lighter skin and more Caucasian-like features. For hundreds of years the Tutsis and the Hutus had coexisted, until European colonizers promoted their racist ideas of one group being superior to another.
Yet, the cease-fire came to an end on April 6th, 1994 when Habyarimana was killed in a plane crash; purposely shot-down by an anonymous. It served as the catalyst for the Rwandan Genocide, allowing each side to claim its innocence of the murder. The United States must intervene to ensure world peace and human rights of the Tutsis by using political instruments such as sending in relief works, and doctors, and issuing threats. Relief workers should be sent in to first, see how far the situation has gotten and if it can be easily stopped and to help those in need. The Genocide is costing the lives of thousands of Tutsis and some moderate Hutus.
In this essay, I will discuss about how the Rwanda genocide and the Second World War started and furthermore I will discuss what caused it to take place and conclude by talking about the differences and similarities between these two categories I have chosen. What caused ruwanda war? In the beginning of April, 1994, Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in Rwanda. As the vicious killings kept on going, the world stood quit and just watched the slaughter. As 100 days past, the Rwanda genocide left around 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu dead.
In 1994 the people of Rwanda went through a horrific experience when one of the major ethnic groups known as the Hutus, slaughtered hundreds and thousands of the second major ethnic groups known as the Tutsis over the course of 100 horrific days. The genocide resulted in the loss of almost one million lives, partly due to a lack of outside intervention, but also the surprising unification of the Hutus & Tutsis. At the same time, it influenced the way the world (more specifically the UN) handles situations like the Rwandan Genocide. The Rwandan Genocide as stated occurred during the year of 1994, but the events that triggered it in the first place had been building up for quite some time, all the way back to 1918. During this year, the Treaty
Crisis in Rwanda Hotel Rwanda is a modern day depiction of the struggles the Rwandan citizens went through during their genocide. This movie describes the hardships that Paul Rusesabagina goes through while he houses Tutsi refugees during the genocide. This connects to the real genocide because the events represented in the movie were based on real life events. This movie helps people understand some of the poverty and destitution that the Tutsi’s went through while they were being tortured and killed by the Hutus. Although many people believe that the German Holocaust was the most disturbing Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide was equally disturbing and violent.
Genocide Throughout History Throughout the history of mankind, horrific acts of genocide have been committed. The Crusades, the Native American being murdered by the Europeans, the Forced Famine in the Ukraine and the Killing Fields of Cambodia are all examples of genocide (Altman,55).

Genocide can be defined as acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part a national, ethnic, racial, religious group by killing members of the group, causing serious bodily of harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about it's physical destruction, imposing measures intended to prevent birth within the group and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group (Altman,14). When a planned genocide is occurring, ethnic cleansing is usually hand in hand.
