Ghosts of Rwanda( Visual )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years ago, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to the small, Central African nation, most of the policymakers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the UN's battered reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia. Few could imagine that, a decade later. Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunts their souls. This documentary marks the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide - a state-sponsored massacre in which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists as the United States and international community stood by, refusing to inervene. Through interviews with key government officials, diplomats, soldiers, and survivors of the slaughter, Ghosts of Rwanda offers groundbreaking, firsthand accounts of the genocide from those who lived it: the diplomats on the scene who thought they were building peace only to see their colleagues murdered; the Tutsi survivors, who recount the horror of seeing their friends and family members slaughtered by Hutu friends and co-workers; and the UN peacekeepers in Rwanda who were ordered not to intervene in the massacre happening all around them. The documentary features interviews with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Canadian General Romeo Dallaire, and former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake as well as haunting interviews with the Hutu killers themselves. Ghosts of Rwanda also examines the aftermath of the genocide, the lessons learned - and not learned - by the international community, and question whether the phrase "never again" has more meaning today than it did ten years ago
