Genocide and Holocaust

The Rwanda Genocide was a killing of the Tutsi by the Hutus. We as a class watched the movie Hotel Rwanda, and it showed how the Hutus rose up and started to kill off all of the Tutsis. What struck me the most was probably how the Hutus used machetes to kill the Tutsis off so barberically. It just struck me in aw. The difference between the Rwanda Genocide and the Holocaust is that the Holocaust was organized. It had people in power and people who had jobs, and also it was undercover. The Rwanda Genocide was open and everyone around the world saw what was happening.

Your "...rised up and started..." should be rose up and started... But overall it was a good post. How you compare the Holocaust and the Rwanda Genocide is very true.
