Abstract:

In the 100 days of genocide that ravaged the small East Central African nation of Rwanda between April and July 1994, approximately 1 million Tutsi and moderate Hutu were killed, and an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 women and girls were raped, as well as an unknown number of men and boys. Almost all Rwandan women who survived the genocide were victims of sexual violence or were profoundly affected by it, and an astounding 70 percent of survivors are living with HIV. And I Live On' features searing testimonials from Rwandan survivors of the genocide 15 and 25 years after the horrific events of 1994. Through their narratives and Samer Muscati's powerful portraits, these women and one man bear witness to the crimes committed in their country and to the suffering they continue to endure. The testimonials also showcase the survivors' extraordinary strength, courage and resilience - challenging the stigma they face both as survivors of sexual violence and as people living with hiv. In speaking out, they provide a glimpse into the worlds of survivors living with the genocide's legacy decades after a conflict. Their stories, along with the accompanying text and illustrations, make an indelible impact.
