dc.description.abstractThis true story about the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda speaks to the courage of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager, who provided refuge to more than 1000 Tutsi refugees in the hotel. Hutu militia carred out mass murder of Tutsi citizens of Rwanda within a period of three months. According to the Internet Movie Database, Nick Nolte's character (Col. Oliver) is modeled in part on Lt. Gen. Romeo Dallaire, the Canadian commanding officer of the UN Peacekeeping mission in Rwanda. He tried to intervene in the genocide despite lack of interest or support from his superiors. Dallaire is the subject of a Sundance audience award documentary called: "Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Romeo Dallaire" (2004). The international community did nothing to intervene in the genocide until it was much too late.en
