The Rawandan "Anne Frank"

In the spring of 1994, more than one million people were murdered in the Rwandan genocide. This is the story of how Immaculee survived certain death, along with seven other women, by hiding in a very small bathroom for more than 3 months. Day after day, for months, the killers would search nearby – gleefully chanting “kill them big, kill them small, kill them, kill them, kill them all!”

I met Immaculee Ilibagiza through a television interview tonight. She has an unbelievable and courageous story. A story of faith, hope, and forgiveness that we all need to hear.

Her book is Left to Tell Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust. I strongly recommend it.

The Left to Tell Foundation has been created to place Rwandan orphans and help chidren in Africa.
