Paper 1 Unit 1: Exploring Persecution Evaluation by Matthew Simpson
When devising our piece about persecution, I felt that our piece should convey several different things to the audience. Firstly, our stimulus is key to understanding what we wanted to show; we chose the Rwandan Genocide and so wanted to show how the oppressed or the persecuted in this situation, due to what has happened to them feel the desire to overpower the oppressors or the persecutors, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. I also felt it was important to show that these people held many similar beliefs and traditions and ways of life and the main difference between them (the Hutus and the Tutsis) are their names, and so show that their conflict was pointless. Perhaps it also shows how people can turn in on their own kind because of these attributed differences which have no physical or even cultural correspondence. Furthermore, I felt it important to show the historical context of the piece and the influences of Western powers upon poorer African nations. After the Treaty of Versailles, Rwanda was under the command of Belgium who promptly gave all of the power positions
