Minister Rev Graham Atkinson comments
It was back in 2010 that I read several books on the Rwanda genocide and its aftermath. Romeo Dallaire’s account ‘Shake hands with the Devil’ tells of his role with the UN during the genocide period and his struggle with not intervening, but it was ‘Left to Tell’ by Immaculee Ilibagiza that had the deepest effect. Having lived (as a Tutsi) through the massacre of her family and friends, and spent many weeks in a cramped toilet with a group of other women none of whom could make any noise or step outside, this Christian lady nevertheless found the grace to forgive those who had perpetrated the atrocities which broke her life.
