Film and Discussion with Lt.-Gen. (Ret.) Romeo Dallaire
Former Force Commander, United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda
In 1994, 800,000 Rwandans were killed in just 100 days. Canadian General Romeo Dallaire, in Rwanda to put into place a peacekeeping force to ensure calm in a country in which a peace treaty between warring tribes had just been signed, had tried frantically to tell the United Nations — and the world — what was about to happen. In the end, he was unable to convince the UN and others to intervene. The Last Just Man shows a haunted Dallaire asking himself what he could have done to prevent disaster.
Gen. Dallaire will be present to respond to questions following this 70-minute film.
Pizza and beverages will be available beginning at 5:30 P.M. outside of Pound Hall 101.
