One of the most dreadful campaigns of mass murder in the history of Africa. Christians murdered in homes, hospitals and in churches. Read about the reasons why and the lessons we need to learn to prevent such atrocities recurring again in Holocaust in Rwanda: The Roles of Gun Control, Media Manipulation, Liberal Church Leaders and the United Nations.
On 6 April 1994, one of the most dreadful campaigns of mass murder was unleashed upon the Tutsi people of Rwanda. In just 100 days more people had been slaughtered with machetes and clubs than died from atomic weapons in all of history.
The horrific massacres in homes, hospitals, churches and on the streets have been widely reported. However, the reasons why this systematic slaughter was unleashed have received little coverage. Similarly, the events leading up to the intense and widespread violence seem little understood. Most importantly, the lessons we need to learn from the genocide in Rwanda need to be clearly and repeatedly proclaimed throughout the world.
In Holocaust in Rwanda, missionary Peter Hammond deals with all these aspects. He also examines the disgraceful involvement of liberal church leaders, gun control, media manipulation, the French and US governments and the United Nations in the crisis.
