‘Ordinary’ people behind brutal acts of genocide, Saskatoon author says in new book

France Rwanda Genocide
FILE – In this April 6, 2004 file photo, Apollan Odetta, a survivor from the 1994 Rwandan Genocide light candles at a mass grave in Nyamata, Rwanda. Two decades after the Rwandan genocide, France is finally opening what critics called its blind eye to justice over the killings. On Tuesday Feb. 4, 2014, a wheelchair-bound Rwandan former intelligence chief appears in Paris court for an expected seven-week trial to face charges of complicity in genocide and complicity in crimes against humanity.

A Saskatoon man who has spent decades chronicling genocide in places like Rwanda and Cambodia says the perpetrators are “frighteningly ordinary.”
