Speaking Out Case Study
Genocide of Rwandan Tutsi 1994
From April to July 1994, between 500,000 and one million Rwandan Tutsi were systematically exterminated by Rwandan Armed Forces (FAR in French). Over several months, more than one million Rwandans fled their country, driven out as a result of threats by the former authorities and fear of civilian massacres.
