Professor Kamatali Writes New York Times Op-Ed - "Following Orders in Rwanda"
On this week 20 years ago, the Rwandan Genocide began. Over the next 100 days an estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed. ONU Law Professor Jean-Marie Kamatali fled the violence in his homeland, only to return years later to provide legal counsel to many accused of murder. In this moving opinion piece for The New York Times, Kamatali examines why so many ordinary people were compelled to do such terrible things.
