remembering goma

November 19th, 2009 by bernd

It is scary that the presumable mass murderers Ignace Murwanashyaka and Straton Musoni could freely live in Germany since the Rwandan genocide 15 years ago. Finally, they have been arrested yesterday. In 1994, I worked in a Hutu refugee camp in Goma. The conditions were appalling.  I had my small Rollei 35 with me but the camera and even the film were slightly damaged during the stay. It was anyhow not a pleasure to take photos in this camp.

    Bernd, there’s probably a minority only remembering even the name Goma, and probably only an even smaller part knowing what happened in Rwanda at that time. Sad reality is, that in many parts of the world violent regimes don’t get overthrown. But it is a small consolation, that justice finally will get at the perpetrators.
