MIGS provides archival resources for research into the Rwandan Genocide and Ukrainian Famine.


Rwandan Radio Transcripts page includes the transcripts of hate radio broadcasts by RTLM, Radio Rwanda and Radio Muhabura in 1994. The transcripts are available in English, French and Kinyarwanda. The pages are still being developed and more information will be added soon.

Kangura was a Kinyarwanda- and French-language magazine in Rwanda that served to stoke ethnic hatred in the run-up to the Rwandan Genocide. It was established in 1990, following the invasion of the rebel Rwandan Patriotic Front Our(RPF), and continued publishing up to the genocide. Sponsored by the dominant MRND party and edited by founder Hassan Ngeze, the magazine was a response to the RPF-sponsored Kanguka, adopting a similar informal style. "Kangura" was a Kinyarwanda word meaning "wake others up", as opposed to "Kanguka", which meant "wake up". The journal was based in Gisenyi. These files were generously donated by Allan Thompson, School of Journalism, Carleton University. (Please note that the files are in .PDF format). See the Kangura Files.
