Rwandan Genocide

Questions for students to consider after watching "Hotel Rwanda":

1.Why do you think people are willing to commit the barbaric acts seen in Rwanda and in other genocides?

2.Why do you think people who were fundamentally good and decent cross the line into behavior that was profoundly wrong?

3.In situations of conflict, people can be classified as perpetrators, rescuers, bystanders and victims. It is estimated that generally the category of bystanders contains far more than all the other categories combined. Why is the bystander category so large?

4.Does it matter what one person does in such situations?
