Left to Tell: One Woman's Story of Surviving the Rwanden Holocaust

by Immaculee Ilibagiza with Steve Erwin
£7.99   paperback  Hay House, Inc (2007)

Left to Tell: One Woman
'I heard the killers call my name.
They were on the other side of the wall, and less than an inch of plaster and wood separated us. Their voices were cold, hard, and determined.
"She's here... we know she's here somewhere... Find her - find Immaculee."
There were many voices, many killers. I could see them in my mind: my former friends and neighbours, who had always greeted me with love and kindness, moving through the house carrying spears and machetes and calling my name.'

 
Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished.
 
But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into a bloody holocaust. Immaculee's family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lived of nearly one million Rwandans.
 
Incredibly, Immaculee survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted for them.
 
This remarkable story of a young woman's journey through the darkness of the holocaust will touch the heart of every reader.

"I've read thousands of books over the past 50 or so years. The book you hold in your hands is by far the most moving and poignantly significant of the vast library that compromises my lifetime of personal reading."
(Dr Wayne W. Dyer)
