‘Words That Kill’ is a film about the role of hate media and propaganda before and during the Genocide against the Tutsi.

Learn about the haunting similarities between the propaganda of the Nazi regime and Hutu Power and how media, especially radio, was used to dehumanise Tutsi and call for people to kill their friends and neighbours. The film was produced by Aegis Trust in partnership with the USC Shoah Foundation.

Afterwards, join prominent journalists and researchers for a discussion about the role of propaganda in the Genocide against the Tutsi and the responsibility media and consumers have today to reject divisive and hateful messages.
