An ordinary man : an autobiography by Paul Rusesabagina ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The true story behind "Hotel Rwanda"Hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina confronted killers with a combination of diplomacy, flattery and deception. This allowed him to shelter more than 1200 people in the Hotel Des Milles Collines, while homicidal mobs raged outside during the Rwandan genocide. This autobiography looks at what happened inside the hotel during those 100 days, relating the anguish of those who saw loved ones brutally massacred, and their survival on airline meals and water from the swimming pool. Rusesabagina also explores the racial complexity within his own life (a Hutu married to a Tutsi) and his complete estrangement from the madness that surrounded him during the genocide
Ein gewöhnlicher Mensch : die wahre Geschichte hinter "Hotel Ruanda" by Paul Rusesabagina ( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das zentralafrikanische Land Ruanda ist im Jahr 1994 Schauplatz eines Völkermords, dessen Dimensionen sich kaum in Worte fassen lassen. Innerhalb von nur 100 Tagen ermorden marodierende Trupps der Hutu-Mehrheit fast eine Million Angehörige der Tutsi-Minderheit. Die internationale Staatengemeinschaft sieht tatenlos zu. Wahrend der Mob mit Macheten bewaffnet durch die Hauptstadt Kigali zieht, gelingt es Paul Rusesabagina, dem Direktor des Auslanderhotels Mille Collines, mit einer atemberaubenden Mischung aus Diplomatie, Schmeichelei, Tauschung und unglaublicher Chuzpe, über 1200 Tutsis und gema#igten Hutus in seinem Hotel Zuflucht zu bieten und so das Leben zu retten. Nicht umsonst nennt man ihn wegen seines mutigen und selbstlosen Verhaltens den äOskar Schindler Afrikasô. In seiner Autobiographie erzahlt Rusesabagina, das reale Vorbild für die Hauptfigur des Films Hotel Ruanda, seine bewegende Geschichte mit eigenen Worten # unpratentiös, ja bescheiden, und gerade deshalb überzeugend. Er berichtet von seinem Leben vor und nach den schicksalhaften Ereignissen, liefert bislang unbekannte Details des Geschehens selbst # etwa über die unrühmliche Rolle einiger Soldaten der UN-Friedenstruppe # und zieht Parallelen zu anderen Völkermorden in der Geschichte. Ein gewöhnlicher Mensch ist nicht allein ein einzigartiges Zeitdokument, sondern vor allem ein aufwühlendes und zutiefst ermutigendes Pladoyer für Mitmenschlichkeit und Toleranz im Angesicht barbarischen Wahns
