The Book

As a teenager, Joseph Sebarenzi fled Rwanda, escaping a campaign of genocide that saw 800,000 Tutsis murdered in just ninety days.


He returned to Rwanda and was elected speaker of parliament. Following a plot to assassinate him, he fled once again. Here, he recounts his life with elegance and wisdom, showing how the lessons of Rwanda can prevent future tragedies from happening the world over in an inspiring story of a man who eschews bitterness and hatred for love, compassion, and forgiveness.

Reviews
