presented by journalist Luciano Scalettari

Dallaire, the Canadian commander of the blue helmets in Rwanda, tried many times to denounce the genocide without succeeding in stopping it.
According to Mr. Scalettari Dallaire is "a valuable witness of what happened in Rwanda and how it was prepared, planned, and scientifically carried out. And a key figure in the denounciation - which he is carrying on - of the events occurred in the course of the genocide and against all genocides".
