Please check out the latest podcast episode, a conversation with Taylor Krauss, the director of Voices of Rwanda, an organization that is "dedicated to recording and preserving testimonies of Rwandans, and to ensuring that their stories inform the world about genocide and inspire a global sense of responsibility to prevent human rights atrocities." In that country in 1994, an estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis were killed by members of the Hutu ethnic majority over the course of just 100 days. Interestingly, interviewees talk not just about the genocide itself, but share their life stories, allowing listeners to get a fuller picture of Rwandan culture -- and to feel more deeply the devastation of the genocide.
