SU Hosts 'Ghosts of Rwanda' Screening July 20

Ghosts of RwandaSALISBURY, MD---In 1994, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to the small central African nation of Rwanda, most of the policymakers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the U.N.’s reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia.

Few could imagine that, a decade later, Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunted their souls.

On the 10th anniversary of the tragedy in 2004, PBS Frontline produced the two-hour documentary Ghosts of Rwanda. For the film, producers interviewed government officials, diplomats, soldiers and survivors who provided first-hand accounts of the state-sponsored genocide through which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists.

The Holocaust Educators Network at Salisbury University hosts a screening of the documentary 7 p.m. Monday, July 20, in Fulton Hall Room 111.

Sponsored by the Memorial Library of New York, Maryland Holocaust Educators Network, and Samuel W. and Marilyn Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies, admission is free and the public is invited.

For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU website at www.salisbury.edu.
