People in Rwanda must be different, we tell ourselves. Savages, unreasoning barbarians still living in some sort of dark ages, hacking and clubbing neighbors to death. 

Meet Richard. He’s not so different. He’s planning his wedding. He’s building a house. He’ll soon graduate from college. If only he can survive. If only he doesn’t fall into the hands of those who would kill him because he carries his mother’s genes—or his father’s. 

Through Richard’s eyes, we see the effects of the age-old attitudes that have led to holocaust after holocaust on our planet. And we see reflections in our own society, perhaps even in our own hearts, of the forces that led to the massacre. 

Kill Thy Neighbor tells the story of the Rwandan genocide of 1994 through the experience of an ordinary man.
