Between April and July 1994, the Rwandan genocide saw the slaughter of close to one million Tutsis and moderate Hutus while the world stood by, unwilling to intervene. This spring, ten years later, the Wilson Center, along with several other organizations, held a series of events to not only remember, but to assess the lessons learned from that tragedy. Shown here is Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda, speaking about the steps his nation has taken to rebuild and reconcile.
