Today we talked about the history of Rwanda. We looked at post-Berlin Conference Rwanda and talked about how the Belgians created classification to separate the Tutsi and the Hutu. Then we looked at the Civil War that started in 1990, the Arusha Accords in 1994, and the Interhamwe Militia.
Then we started watching Hotel Rwanda!
The film is on Netflix if you were gone today (or if your parents want to follow along at home!). We got 17 minutes into the movie.
