Twenty years ago, beginning on April 6 1994, more than 800,000 people were killed in Rwanda in a horrific genocide that spanned 100 days. Genocide continues to be a tragic global issue. Paul Rusesabagina, whose autobiography “AN ORDINARY MAN,” inspired the film “Hotel Rwanda,” will join us from Brussels Belgium.
As the manager of the exclusive Hotel Milles Collines he sheltered more than 1,200 Tutsis and Hutu moderates from the mass killing going on around him. In his book, he relates the anguish of those who saw loved ones brutally murdered, and describes his ambivalence at pouring scotch and lighting the cigars of killers in the Swimming Pool bar, even as he was trying to cram as many refugees as possible inside the guest rooms upstairs.
