International Day of Reflection on Rwanda Genocide

As appalling as it may sound, there are days dedicated to genocides. So that people stop and think about history atrocities and commit to avoid repeating them. On 7 April, the UN commemorates the first day the genocide in Rwanda began in 1994.


A perfect example of humanitarian failure. Rather than reflecting, it should have been prevented and acted upon. As UN Sec Gen put it, the UN is ashamed it allowed ethnic cleansing of more than 800,000 people. One year afterwards, Srebrenica was allowed.
