About this product
- DescriptionIn this firsthand account of inexplicable brutality, day-to-day suffering, and survival, Marie Beatrice Umutesi sheds light on the other gecide that targeted the Hutu refugees of Rwanda after the victory of the Rwandan Patriotic Front in 1994. Umutesi's documentation of these years provides the world a history that is still widely unkwn. Available in English for the first time, this poignant autobiography is more than a testimony to the lives and humanity lost; it is a call for those responsible for the atrocious crimes - and the devastating silence - to be held accountable.
- Author BiographyMarie Beatrice Umutesi is a sociologist who worked with women's associations in Byumba, Rwanda, until she was forced to flee to Zaire in 1994. She is currently working on rural development projects in Cameroon.
