God Sleeps in Rwanda: A Personal Journey of Transformation

by Joseph Sebarenzi, with Laura Ann Mullane
£12.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2010)

God Sleeps in Rwanda: A Personal Journey of Transformation by Joseph Sebarenzi, with Laura Ann Mullane The efficiency of the Hutu killers in the Rwandan genocide of 1994 exceeded that even of the Nazi Holocaust. It happened in front of the world’s eyes, every moment broadcast on television – but nothing was done.
Among the 800,000 Tutsis killed were Joseph Sebarenzi’s parents and seven siblings. God Sleeps in Rwanda follows Sebarenzi’s return to Rwanda as an elected speaker of parliament, his attempts to reform the ravaged country, and the assassination plot that once again forced him into exile. Today he educates the world about Rwanda, working to prevent these atrocities from ever happening again.
Speaker of the Rwandan parliament from 1997 to 2000, Joseph Sebarenzi now lives in Virginia and lectures in conflict management. His parents and seven siblings were among the thousands brutally murdered in the Tutsi genocide.

"A passionate, heartfelt perspective about the tragedy, and his personal ordeal and survival. Sebarenzi writes with a concise, authoritative voice, and with exceptional clarity of Rwanda's complicated past and present."
(Herb Boyd, author of Baldwin's Harlem)
"Compelling and heartrending... Readers will be swept up by this powerful narrative, with the remarkable arc of Sebarenzi’s life, and especially by his capacity to transform violence and embrace love... Of Sebarenzi’s personal journey, one can only stand in awe, with gratitude that he has survived and that we are able to share in his journey."
(Paula Green, Professor of Conflict Transformation at the School for International Training's Graduate Institute, and Director of the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding)
