Learning from the Bosnian Conflict and the Tragedy of the Rwandan Genocide: International Conflicts after the Cold War

7 recommended reference works to learn about the Rwandan genocide - there was a hell there that made me want to turn away...

The Rwandan genocide is so shocking. It could be a traumatic read. It is such a hell. One can only be horrified that human beings can be so cruel.

I learned about the Rwandan genocide this way because of the Bosnian conflict, but reading these books reminded me that Bosnia, Rwanda, and Somalia are not each unique and abnormal, but that we all have something in our nature that allows such things to happen and that we all could have done it. I was reminded once again that human nature is such that such things can happen, and that we all have the potential to do them.

It is a history that we would like to turn away from, but if we do not pass through it, history will repeat itself in a different form. To prevent this from happening, we must learn about the tragic human history.

Modern Russia and the Russo-Ukrainian War

Kayoko Yamazaki, "Blue Darkness Whispering from There" - A collection of essays by a poet who experienced the NATO bombing of Belgrade - What was happening there?

This work is a collection of essays by Kayoko Yamazaki, a poet living in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.

Why did the Yugoslav conflict happen...

This conflict has been described in terms of a simple "Serbian villain theory."

In the midst of such international public opinion, Serbia was bombed by NATO. The author remained in Belgrade during the intense bombing and wrote in this book the voices of the people living there and his own thoughts and feelings.

Stalin and Hitler's genocide and holocaust

B. Stangnet, "Eichmann Before Jerusalem: The Peaceful Life of a Mass Murderer" - The "banality (mediocrity) of evil" theory is overturned!

It is a shocking work that could overturn Arendt's "banality of evil" theory!

The Eichmann revealed in this book is the exact opposite of the "banality of evil." Arendt is told in this book that he fell into Eichmann's carefully planned trap in Jerusalem. Eichmann was no mere cog in the wheel of power. It is a terrifying book.

Stalin and Hitler's genocide and holocaust

Can Arendt's "banality of evil" be exonerated - Can crime be forgiven if you are a cog in the wheel of power? Considering Genocide.

アーレントの「悪の陳腐さ」は罪を逃れるための免罪符になってはいないだろうか。これがふとスレブレニツァやルワンダの虐殺を学ぶ過程で私が感じてしまった疑問でした。加害者たちは「仕方がなかった」と自分の行動の責任を考えようとはしません。ですがそれではたしてよいのでしょうか。そのことをこの記事で今一度考えてみました。

Learning from the Bosnian Conflict and the Tragedy of the Rwandan Genocide: International Conflicts after the Cold War

Black Hawk Down: The Combat Record of America's Finest Special Forces - Based on the blockbuster movie! Recommended to learn about the Somali tragedy.

This film was the basis for Ridley Scott's hit movie Black Hawk Down.

The fighting in Somalia was to have a major impact on later U.S. military intervention.

It is said that the UN peacekeeping operations that became dysfunctional in the Bosnian conflict and the Rwandan genocide, both of which have been discussed in this blog, were also greatly affected by this very incident.

Until then, the United States and other industrialized nations believed that conflicts in developing countries could be easily put down if they intervened with overwhelming force. However, Black Hawk Down was the event that destroyed this optimistic view.

At this point, the final countdown to the Rwandan genocide and the Srebrenica massacre may have begun...

When Neighbors Turn into Murderers: The Road to Reconciliation - Testimony of the Rwandan Genocide" - A Hell of Coexistence with the Butcher. What exactly is forgiveness?

This book is the last in the "When Neighbors Turn Killers" trilogy. As befits a last work, this book is also a terrific one. Personally, this is the most memorable book in the trilogy. The harsh reality of the situation was brought home to me in this book...
What is peace? What is man? What is sin and punishment? Good and evil, the problem of God. The problem of forgiveness.

The fundamental problems in human beings are packed in here. There are no answers. But the voices of people who have lived in extreme conditions are here. What do you think about when you listen to their voices? I think this is very important.
