The many people of Tumblr
- Relatives of victims of the genocide grieve during a memorial event.
- Soldiers of the Rwandan Patriotic Front rebel group inspect the wreckage of the plane shot down April 6, 1994, killing Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian President Cyprien Ntaryamira. The attack on the plane sparked the genocide in Rwanda, in which more than half a million people were killed in just three months.
- A brother and sister find each other after a reunion of families separated during the genocide.
- A crowd of mostly Tutsi civilians, seeking protection against Hutu militiamen, sit in the Saite Famille Catholic church in the then government controlled part of Kigali, listening to a member of the security services address them. Over several months, many people were taken from Sainte Famille church and killed by Hutu militiamen, who maintained checkpoints around the church during the genocide.
- One of the many houses marked with the word “Tutsi” stands in a deserted village in eastern Rwanda, just a few kilometers from a church at Nyarubuye in which more than 1,000 people were massacred by Hutu militiamen.
- Civilians wounded during the genocide recover in a makeshift hospital in the Sainte Famille church in Kigali, Rwanda.
- Thousands of mostly Hutu refugees fled across the border to Congo (then Zaire) in the face of the advancing Rwanda Patriotic Front, in the last days of the genocide. Among them were Rwandan soldiers and militamen who had taken part in the genocide.
We must never forget the devastation that happened 20 years ago today in Rwanda.
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
