It should be noted his character and his character’s actions in Hotel Rwanda are not based in truth. While Tutsi and Hutu refugees camped in the hotel, Rusesbagina made their lives hell. He asked them to pay their room bills, and pay for meals when the country was at war and they had no where else to go. He also asked the UN to evict 400 Tutsi refugees, which would have certainly led to their immediate death. He also sold Red Cross food to the refugees, this food was provided for free for the people, however Rusesbagina forced them to pay for food. Rusesbagina is a genocide denier, with links to militia groups and genocidaires in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). He has homes in Brussels, Belgium and San Antonio, Texas. Rusesabagina founded the Hotel Rwanda Rusesabagina Foundation to raise money for himself and his family, and his political aspirations.

  • Thomas the Tank Engine is a British anthropomorphised fictional steam locomotive in The Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher, published from 1945. He became the most popular and famous character in the series, and is the titular protagonist in the accompanying television spin-off series Thomas & Friends.[1] Thomas is a blue steam engine and has a number 1 painted on his side. All of the vehicles in The Railway Series were based on prototypical engines; Thomas’s basis is the LB&SCR E2 class.[2] Thomas first appeared in 1946 in the second book in the series, Thomas the Tank Engine, and was the focus of the four short stories contained within. Thomas's best friends are Percy and Toby. In 1979, British writer/producer Britt Allcroft came across the books,[3] and arranged a deal to bring the stories to life as the TV series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends (later simplified to Thomas & Friends). The programme became an award-winning hit around the world, with a vast range of spinoff commercial products.
