Lasting Wounds: Consequences of Genocide and War on Rwanda’s Children


A twelve-year-old boy detained on accusations that he participated in the genocide stares out of a bus window, waiting to be transferred from one detention center to another in June 1995. Nearly 1,000 children spent years in prison on genocide charges even though they were too young to be held criminally responsible. As many as 4,000 more who were between the ages of fourteen and eighteen in 1994 continue to languish in prison. © 1995 Corinne Dufka
