Surviving the Slaughter

In this firsthand account of inexplicable brutality, day-to-day suffering, and survival, Marie Beatrice Umutesi sheds light on ""the other genocide"" 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 unknown. 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.

"Testimony so powerful and moving that it reaches an unintended literary greatness." - Jan Vansina, African Studies Review "Umutesi helps us better understand the fear that has fueled a history of violence between both Tutsi and Hutu... and the utter failure of the international organizations, governments, and media to tell the truth about this genocide." - Aili Mari Tripp, series editor"
