The Rwandan Genocide began on 6 April 1994, when a plane carrying the Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana was shot down over Kigali. This sparked one hundred days of brutal massacres throughout the country. As the violence and fear escalated, the UN was called on to take action. The Triumph of Evil details the events that took place both in Rwanda and inside the UN that allowed over 850,000 people to lose their lives in one of the most horrifying genocides of the twentieth century.The book is based on the eye-witness account of Charles Petrie, a UN official called in to assist in the region during the genocide, and it documents what he believes are the failings of the UN when it came to protecting their own staff. In particular, The Triumph of Evil relates the events that led to the murders of a number of Rwandan nationals who were working for the UN, and were due to be evacuated.Focusing on individual stories and experiences, it highlights how quickly terror can reign when disenfranchised groups are incited to violence under an oppressive system, and how organizations can fail when political motivations muddy the waters.
