Erin Scharff, in her first post on her new site, considers the Rwandan genocide, which began a decade ago this week, in light of ongoing trials there for crimes against humanity, and the implications of Tutsi resettlement for the Zionist response to the Holocaust:

It struck most people at the time that reintegration was an impossibility and in truth, few survivors really wanted to return. My grandfather was treated to a less than receptive welcome in Poland when he return home, and when he and my grandmother testified in Munich at de-nazification trials, they refused to spend the night in Germany.

After the Shoah, my grandmother’s father brought her over to New York, while my grandfather, also from Lithuania, stayed in Munich to work for two years before they brought him over as well.
