The story of Rwanda's Genocide are heartbreaking. The interviews, live footage and narrative are incredibly informative as well as riveting. I found myself glued to the screen, and my family (who had no prior interest) also found themselves stuck to the television. It is an example of how the world, particularly the UN & United States failed these people in their time of need. The scale of this massacre is horrendous given the time at which it took place. This should never happen again....
