Just watched Hotel Rwanda and was amazed to consider that one million Africans were slaughtered just ten years ago and i hardly heard a word about it, yet we are still, sixty years on, hearing about the Holocaust. Does this not seem a tad... curious?

Decent film anyway, thought-provoking, tho a little odd to see the UN made out as the Good Guys.

First thought that struck me is this: historical enactments separate the masses into victims and victimizers, and in that template, anyone who belongs to niether class but makes his or her own choices, becomes ipso facto, a hero.

I have also been reading about the real-life Dracula and i can tell you, he makes the fictional Count look like a pussycat. Truth is more twisted than fiction. More on Vlad anon.
