On Monday, Oct. 31, the Bismarck State College Embracing Diversity Committee invites the campus to view the film, "Hotel Rwanda," focusing on the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m., Basin Electric Auditorium, National Energy Center of Excellence, Room 304.
The Oscar-nominated film is set during one of the worst atrocities in African history. This film takes place amidst the attempted genocide of the Rwandan people in 1994 by the Hutu militia.
Paul Rusesabagina was a hotel manager in Kigali who took in more than 1,000 refugees at his elegant hotel to save their lives at great risk to himself and his family. This film finally brings this horrifying incident to light as it was barely a blip on the radar of the general public even though nearly 1 million Rwandans were killed.
