More than 800,000 people fell victim to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Journalist and author Philip Gourevitch has traveled to the shattered country for nine consecutive years and traces the psychological aftermath of the genocide in his literary portraits of people from Rwanda. Anton Peez has explored questions of the international community’s responsibility, analyzing German foreign policy in the run-up to and during the genocide and formulating policy recommendations for similar situations in the future.
