This book is a true picture at the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi and its effects on a young woman is soul. Immaculée Ilibagiza realised that things were not as simple as they looked when during her high school, years before the Genocide. She learns that things have taken a horrifying turn when she was asked to stand up in class by her teacher during an ethnic roll call. She realised that her neighbours were not what she thought them to be – good and friendly.
God became her father, mother, brother, her everything, in a tiny bathroom where she hid from the killers for months because Immaculée’s father asked her to go to hide at the house of Pastor Mulinzi – a family friend – with her brother Vianney, and Augustin, Immaculée’s friend.
Mulinzi accepted them into his house, but chased Vianney and Augustin away later on and that was the last she ever saw or heard of her family. Imaculee’s goal is not to give a historical account of Rwanda and/or of the genocide. She gives her own story. She attests that through God’s help, forgiveness is possible – even to those who killed her parents. Brace yourself for an enthralling story on the survival and triumph of a single lady, who was,in her own words, left to Tell.
