In the spring of 1994, the African country of Rwanda exploded into violence.
Hundreds of thousands of people were killed. Men, women and children were hacked to death with machetes because they were of a different ethnic group. The bloodshed lasted for 100 days.
But in the midst of the horror, a group of outsiders found themselves in a position to help. Muslims opened the doors of their mosques as a place of refuge for all people, particularly Christians.
That inspiring tale of unity among crisis is the focus of “Kinyarwanda,” an award-winning film.
