In 1994, close to one million people were killed
in a planned and systematic genocide in the African
Rwanda, the largest systematic murder of a single race
since the Holocaust.
How did this carnage occur when the world declared
WWII that it would never tolerate such mass murder again?
Who was responsible?
Why did the international community fail to respond? This
filmed documentary attempts to answer these questions.Forsaken

with survivors and analyses of key issues including: international

rights violations; and the war crimes tribunal.
