Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Genocide in the 20th Century - Rwanda. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Rwanda is one of the smallest countries in Central Africa, with just 7 million people, and is comprised of 2 main ethnic groups, the Hutu and the Tutsi. Although the Hutus account for 90% of the population, in the past, the Tutsi minority was considered the aristocracy of Rwanda and dominated Hutu peasants for decades, especially while Rwanda was under Belgian colonial rule.

Beginning on April 6, 1994, and for the next 100 days, up to 800,000 Tutsis were killed by Hutu militia using clubs and machetes, with as many as 10,000 killed each day. On April 6, while returning from a meeting in Tanzania, a small jet carrying the 2 presidents was shot down by ground-fired missiles as it approached Rwanda's airport at Kigali. Immediately after their deaths, Rwanda plunged into political violence as Hutu extremists began targeting prominent opposition figures who were on their death-lists, including moderate Hutu politicians and Tutsi leaders.

The killings then spread throughout the countryside as Hutu militia, armed with machetes, clubs, guns and grenades, began indiscriminately killing Tutsi civilians. The killings only ended after armed Tutsi rebels, invading from neighboring countries, managed to defeat the Hutus and halt the genocide in July 1994. By then, over 10% of the population, an estimated 800,000 persons, had been killed.

NOTE: ALTHOUGH I HAVE TRIED TO BE SENSITIVE IN THE SELECTION OF PICTURES FOR THE PRESENTATION, DUE TO THE GRAPHIC NATURE OF THE SUBJECT MATERIAL SOME STUDENTS MAY FIND CERTAIN PICTURES TROUBLESOME. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SUBSTITUTE OR ELIMINATE AS REQUIRED.
