Considerations on radio and genocide in Rwanda.
For some 100 days in the spring and summer of 1994, millions of Rwandans witnessed,participated in,or otherwise lived through a nationwide campaign of extermination, a collective effort whose rhythm was in many ways regulated by the broadcasts of Radio-Television Libre des Mille Collines (RTLM).
Contradictory Behavior During Genocides
In all large scale genocides such as genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda, rescuing occurs alongside killing. Some members of the aggressor’s ethnic group even risk their own lives to save members of the targeted group. Killing and rescuing occur closely together, and even the same persons may engage in both behaviors killing on one occasion and rescuing on another.

Placing genocide in context: research priorities for the Rwandan genocide
Prior to 1994, the country of Rwanda was little known outside the limited circle of African studies scholars. A reference to Rwanda in a conversation, such as a small land locked country with few natural resources and no strategic importance, was likely to be met with blank stares.
