This afternoon at 17.00 hrs at Humanity House in The Hague a lecture about Rwanda Today: 20 Years after the Genocide.
In 1994, an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed in the space of 100 days. How does a state that survived mass violence and mass killings build a new future, and what mechanisms does it use for coming to terms with its past?
In this lecture the premiere of the first episode of Love Radio will be shown, a transmedia project based on a popular Rwandan radio soap opera. By journalist and filmmaker Eefje Blankevoort and photographer Anoek Steketee. Scott Straus (expert on genocide in Rwanda and author) gives a lecture with the theme ‘20 Years after the Genocide in Rwanda, where do we stand?’. The university teacher Felix Ndahinda (Tilburg University) will reflect on Straus’ lecture.
