Reflections on 100 Years of War, Genocide & Mass Violence

Various Participants at Various venues around Johannesburg

This year marks three significant events that had a great impact on our world: the centenary of the beginning of World War I, the 75th anniversary of the start of World War II and the 20th commemoration of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda that targeted the Tutsi minority.

Various international and local organisations have come together to curate a series of featured events to commemorate and reflect on these momentous world events and learn about their influence on:

    •    The development of modern warfare – from WWI to the genocide in Rwanda
    •    The effect of war and violence on civilian populations in the last 100 years
    •    War, genocide and mass atrocities – how to prevent them, and who should take responsibility?

Between 11 November and 10 December 2014, the events are being held in various institutes, museums, education centres and universities around Johannesburg with local and international partners. The programme includes lectures and panel discussions by international academics, authors and filmmakers, as well as a series of films, education workshops and a theatre production.
