Raising awareness about the Rwandan genocide

"Twenty years ago, Edouard Kayihura and Chantal Mudahogora were living their normal lives in their native Rwanda. They did not know each other at the time but one fateful day in April 1994, their lives changed forever in one of the most horrific ways imaginable. Today they are both survivors of the same tragedy that will link them forever.

Both spoke Sunday at an event held at Congregation Kol Ami in observance of the 20th commemoration of the genocide that occurred in 1994 against the Tutsi population in Rwanda. In 100 days, nearly 1 million Rwandan Tutsis — and Hutu who were opposed to the ideology of killing Tutsi — were slaughtered."
