A Special Anniversary

 

Two decades ago, during a 100-day period beginning on April 7th and ending in mid-July of 1994, as many as 1,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Tutsis and moderate Hutus, were killed during the radical Hutu-perpetrated genocide that marks Rwandan history in the late 20th century. Millions more Rwandans were displaced or became refugees. All who survived are living with a history that, depending on heritage, brings with it the pain and grief of shame for the perpetrators or the pain and grief of violent loss for the victims. When we received our first submission from a Rwandan scholar just as the 20th anniversary of the genocide approached, we believed that we should take this moment to show our respect and care for all who are dealing with the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy and travesty. We therefore elected to publish this important and well-reviewed scholarly article as a stand-alone special issue in commemoration of all those who lost their lives and those who are carrying on to rebuild a stronger country.
