In the book Night, there was a scene that showed the mass killings that the Nazis’ committed, they shoved all of the people in death camps and lined them up and killed them. In Hotel Rwanda they lined them up and killed them. Another similarity that they share is the cruelty and the heartlessness that they have. Even when the children were begging to have mercy, they still killed them.
He trusts the UN organization and trusts American and British forces. However he loses hope when he realizes international forces are there to save foreign citizens and diplomats but not Hutus or Tutsis. The rest of the world strangely ignored the massacre even though the Rwanda government asked other countries for help or military support. The international community did not interfere in the conflict and choose to ignore the massacre of Hutu’s and Tutsis. Several western governments especially the Belgian, French and US governments aided in the cover-up.
The Holocaust started with Kristallnacht, which is “the Night of Broken Glass.” This occurred on November 7th, 1938.

The Battle of Mogadishu The Battle of Mogadishu went from a normal military kidnapping to a seventeen hour firefight for soldiers lives. Most Americans have the image of American soldiers being dragged lifeless through the streets of Mogadishu, half-naked, but the event itself was much more than that. It was an event filled with miscommunication, bad choices and American heroes fighting for their lives (Alex 1). The Battle of Mogadishu led to the deaths of thousands of Somali militia, which caused the United States to intervene leading to one of the United States Military’s largest aggravating military defeats.

Conflict Resolution and Peacemaking Paper PSY/400 Conflict Resolution and Peacemaking Paper In the early 1990’s, a civil war broke out between peoples living in the former Belgian colony of Burundi. The Burundi Civil War was an armed conflict that took place from 1993 to 2005 (Piombo, 2010). The civil war was instigated from ethnic tensions existing between the Hutu and the Tutsi tribes. Burundi was a country that was run by a small elite group of the Tutsi tribe, which had been the focus of much criticism within the nation. The conflict began following the first multiparty elections in the country since gaining independence from Belgium in 1962.
The Tutsi's were given power while under Belgium occupation. However, once the Belgium's left, power was given to the Hutu's creating civil unrest. The civil war that led to this genocide began with a peace treaty between Tutsi rebels and the Hutu president. The treaty was signed but the president was then murdered and the Hutu's responded by killing over a million Tutsi civilians. During this time Paul was the manager of the Sabena Hotel des Mille Collines.
Paul Rusesabagina In 1994 in Rwanda, a million members of the Tutsi tribe were killed by members of the Hutu tribe in a massacre that took place while the world looked away due to the fact that Belgian occupants established the entire social separation of the Rwandan people. "Hotel Rwanda" is not the story of that massacre which was filmed by Terry George. It is the story of a hotel manager who saved the lives of 1,200 people by being, a substantially good hotel manager. He spends his days arranging favors for people in power and getting supplies to satisfy his prominent guests, he is the type of man who knows how things work in the real world, he uses his skills of bribery, flattery, apology and deception to save these lives that have come into his care as you could have seen in the film. Paul is a very wise man; he is a man who knows what is going on in the real world, he does courageous things throughout the film and wore different hats during the film.
