1994

1994 was marked by the Rwandan genocide, which began on April 7th in Kigali. The tragic slaughter of Tutsi by the Hutu government would go on for 100 days, ending on July 4th.

1994

On a more positive note, Nelson Mandela is president on April 27th during the South Africa’s first multiracial elections. U.S. President Bill Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed the Kremlin Accords on January 14th, de-escalating the tension inherited from the Cold War.

In Europe, Finland voters decided to join the European Union on April 16th and, on May 6th, the Channel Tunnel between France and the U.K. was completed after seven years of labor.

In the arts, Spielberg’s Schindler’s List won seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. On February 1st, U.S. punk rock group Green Day released Dookie, which would eventually sell over 20 million copies worldwide and on the same day, Edvard Munch’s famous painting “The Scream” is stolen in Oslo, only to be returned in May of that year.

Music icon Kurt Cobain of Nirvana is found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on April 8th and, on a lighter note, Disney’s The Lion King, the highest-grossing hand-drawn animated feature of all time, is released on June 15th.

A few months later, the famous sitcom Friends premiered on NBC. In sports, the New York Rangers win the Stanley Cup on June 14th, defeating the Vancouver Canucks, which sparks a riot in the city of Vancouver. This occurs a few days before NFL star O.J. Simpson is arrested for murder.

In science and technology, Apple released the first PowerPC-equipped personal computers, which represented a huge leap in processing power. Notable births in 1994 include Canadian singer Justin Bieber and American actress Dakota Fanning.
