Machete season : the killers in Rwanda speak : a report by Jean Hatzfeld( Book )

66 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the spring of 1994, in a tiny country called Rwanda, some 800,000 people were hacked to death, one by one, by their neighbors in a gruesome civil war. Several years later, journalist Jean Hatzfeld traveled to Rwanda to interview ten participants in the killings, eliciting extraordinary testimony from these men about the genocide they perpetrated
The antelope's strategy : living in Rwanda after the genocide by Jean Hatzfeld( Book )

47 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In two previous works, journalist Hatzfeld offered a profound, harrowing witness to the pain and horror in the mass killings of one group of people by another. Combining his own analysis of the events with interviews from both Hutu killers and Tutsi survivors, he explored the psychology of evil, and of survival, in unprecedented depth. Now he returns to Rwanda seven years later to talk with both the Hutus and Tutsis he'd come to know--some of the killers who had been released from prison or returned from Congolese exile, and the Tutsi escapees who must now tolerate them as neighbors. How are they managing with the process of reconciliation? Do they think in their hearts it is possible? This is an astonishing exploration of the pain of memory, the nature of stoic hope, and the ineradicability of grief.--From publisher description
Life laid bare : the survivors in Rwanda speak by Jean Hatzfeld( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late 1990s, French author and journalist Jean Hatzfeld made several journeys into the hilly, marshy region of the Bugesera, one of the areas most devastated by the Rwandan genocide of April 1994, where an average of five out of six Tutsis were hacked to death with machete and spear by their Hutu neighbors and militiamen. In the villages of Nyamata and N'tarama, Hatzfeld interviewed fourteen survivors of the genocide, from orphan teenage farmers to the local social worker. For years the survivors had lived in a muteness as enigmatic as the silence of those who survived the Nazi concentration camps. In Life Laid Bare, they speak for those who are no longer alive to speak for themselves; they tell of the deaths of family and friends in the churches and marshes to which they fled, and they attempt to account for the reasons behind the Tutsi extermination. For many of the survivors "life has broken down," while for others, it has "stopped," and still others say that it "absolutely must go on."

Into the quick of life : the Rwandan genocide : the survivors speak : a report by Jean Hatzfeld( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In two acclaimed previous works, the noted French journalist Jean Hatzfeld offered a profound, harrowing witness to the unimaginable pain and horror in the mass killings of one group of people by another in Rwanda. Now, in The Strategy of Antelopes, he talks with both the Hutus and Tutsis he'd come to know - some of the killers who had been released from prison or returned from Congolese exile, and the Tutsi escapees who must now tolerate them as neighbours. How are they managing with the process of reconciliation? In their hearts is it possible? The enormously varied and always surprising answers he gets suggest that the political ramifications of the international community's efforts to insist on resolution after these murderous episodes are incalculable. This is an astonishing exploration of the pain of memory, the nature of hope, and the ineradicability of grief

"Au printemps 1992, les Serbes encerclent Sarajevo. Vahidin et Marija, deux athlètes de l'équipe de tir yougoslave, s'entraînent en prévision des jeux Olympiques de Barcelone. Tous deux sont bosniaques, et amants ; lui est musulman, elle est serbe. Ils vivent à Ilidža, une banlieue de Sarajevo, sans s'être jamais souciés de leurs origines. Pourtant, ils vont être brutalement séparés par le siège, puis au fil des mois enrôlés dans des camps opposés en raison de leurs exceptionnels dons pour le tir. Jean Hatzfeld reconstitue l'atmosphère de Sarajevo sous les bombardements, le basculement des mentalités, il pénètre dans l'univers des tireurs d'élite, il décrit leurs techniques, leur adaptation à la topographie urbaine. Mais c'est avec les armes du romancier qu'il nous permet de vivre une tragédie contemporaine, à travers la malédiction qui frappe deux amoureux pris malgré eux dans l'engrenage guerrier."--Page 4 of cover

Récits des marais rwandais by Jean Hatzfeld( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En trois livres d'une portée internationale, Jean Hatzfeld a écrit un triptyque du génocide tutsi perpétré au Rwanda en 1994, et cet ensemble est proposé pour la première fois en un seul volume, afin de faire apparaître l'ampleur et l'articulation de cette œuvre d'écoute et d'interrogation. Le 1er tome (Dans le nu de la vie), paru en 2000, s'intéresse aux rescapés tutsis, le 2e (Une saison de machettes, 2003) aux tueurs hutus, et le 3e (La stratégie des antilopes, 2007) raconte le vertigineux voisinage, aujourd'hui, des uns et des autres revenus sur leurs collines. Récits des marais rwandais est issu de nombreux séjours, effectués au cours d'une dizaine d'années, dans une seule et même bourgade, Nyamata, et ses hameaux bordés de marais et de forêts, lieux de massacres. En tissant au fil du temps un lien patient, jamais rompu, avec vingt-six interlocutrices et interlocuteurs appartenant aux deux communautés, en multipliant non sans obstination ses interrogations avec eux, et en réalisant un travail d'écriture sur la langue et le souvenir à partir de ces récits, Jean Hatzfeld a constitué un univers génocidaire d'une dimension exceptionnelle, dont l'écho nous habite durablement."
