About the book:
Authentic, harrowing, and inspirational, 𝑺𝒖𝒓𝒗𝒊𝒗𝒐𝒓𝒔 𝑼𝒏𝒄𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒐𝒓𝒆𝒅 contains more than 100 recollections of events narrated by those who lived through the tragic events when Rwanda turned to darkness. The diversity of experiences sets this book apart from what has already been written about the genocide and massacres in Rwanda and the great lakes region of Africa. These stories bring to light the experiences of both Rwandans and non-Rwandans before, during, and after the genocide of 1994 and contribute to truth-telling, restoring justice, emancipating participants and fostering lasting peace, all while inspiring the readers. This collection of memories paves the way for a traumatized region to find a healing process and work toward a society where all the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity are known and held accountable for their actions.
Ribara Uwariraye is a Rwandan proverb that translates to, “what happens during the night can best be reported by the person who experienced that night” to emphasize that the best person to tell a true story is the one who saw and lived the story. With that meaning in mind, a platform called “Ribara Uwariraye” was created. This platform is an empowering safe space where survivors and witnesses speak freely about their experiences, which has inspired more and more individuals to share their stories publicly. This is happening despite huge efforts by Rwanda’s dictatorial regime to control the narrative of what happened and still happens in the Great Lakes Region of Africa.
