@freyntje reminds me ever more of David Irving who once, in Nov 94, pathetically tried to challenge @deborahlipstadt in a debate about his claim that the absence of a written order from the Führer’s hand was a reason to doubt the reality of the #Holocaust. @SinaloCaroline 1/6
Similarly today, @freyntje is doubting the planification of the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi just because the ICTR did not convict Bagosora of conspiracy to commit genocide (prior to 7 April 1994), thereby simply disregarding available historical evidences of the planification. 2/6
Back then, Irving was ridiculously waiving with 1000$ in his hand for anyone to engage in a debate with him, must’ve been quite a sight! Today @freyntje is waving as much as he can on Twitter to “debate” his historical distortions & manipulations. @gateteviews @SinaloCaroline 3/6

When I was in #Rwanda in 2017 to commemorate the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi, I struggled with how best to honour the survivors who so generously shared their stories.Was it in retelling of unimaginable horrors they were subjected to?Or in celebrating survival,resilience & strength?
I shared stories of survival and courage. And I also took home in my heart resilience and joy. Remembering #Kigali Independent University student survivors #Kwibuka25

Today marks 25yrs since the genocide against the Tutsis in #Rwanda. The international community stood by as more than 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days.
In 2017, I was honoured to be in Rwanda for the commemoration. #RwandaGenocide
A thread I wrote in #Kigali in 2017 during the ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsis. There are 250,000 Tutsi victims of the 1994 genocide buried at #Kigali Genocide Memorial #Rwanda #Kwibuka25
Kwibuka means Remembrance. It was an honour to join The Walk to Remember in #Kigali two years ago to remember the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi. I send love and solidarity to friends in #Rwanda who are remembering today, the 25th anniversary. #Kwibuka25
