A generation after the world proclaimed it would never again tolerate genocide, the international community stood by while over 800,000 Rwandans were murdered. This event is being held to mark the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.
Weaving together historical analysis with groundbreaking, eyewitness accounts, FRONTLINE examines the social, political, and diplomatic forces that converged to enable genocide.
