Trauma healing in Rwanda - preview
In 100 days in 1994, the Hutu power government in Rwanda killed an estimated 850,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu opposition
  • For eight years, 120,000 people accused of participation in the killings have been in prison, under very overcrowded conditions and without trial
  • Of these, 30,000 who have confessed to participation in the genocide are being released to face less formal 'gacaca' courts in the villages
  • These freed prisoners, and the survivors of the genocide whose families and friends were killed, feel hatred, fear and resentment towards one another
  • This is the starting point for the work of the trauma healing group in Rwanda

  • Adrien Niyongabo, Burundi YM
