Season 22, Episode 10 Ghosts of Rwanda

First Aired: April 1, 2004

“Ghosts of Rwanda” recalls the April 1994 genocide in the African nation, in which Hutus killed some 800,000 Tutsis. It was, says producer Greg Barker, the Hutu government's “own version of the final solution.” In interviews with eyewitnesses and officials, Barker examines the complex causes of the tragedy. And he looks at it as a “moral test” for those who wanted to stop it. “What do you do in a crisis?” he asks. “You hope you'd do the right thing, but there's no guarantee.”
