Rwandan genocide 20th anniversary; the Order of Malta: our duty to remember victims and survivors

Rome, 03/04/2014

In April 1994, members of the Hutu majority in Rwanda organised and implemented the mass slaughter of the Tutsi minority. In just 100 days over 800,000 Tutsi were slaughtered, 10,000 were killed each day, 7 every minute. The genocide was sparked by the death of the Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, a Hutu, when his plane was shot down above Kigali airport on 6 April 1994. “Today we commemorate the victims of Africa’s largest genocide in modern history and pay tribute to those who survived and still bear the consequences both physical and psychological of such atrocity” says Albrecht Boeselager, Grand Hospitaller of the Sovereign Order of Malta.
