Abstract:

"In the late 1990s, French journalist Jean Hatzfeld made several journeys into the hilly, marshy region of the Bugesera, one of the areas most devastated by the Rwandan genocide - where five out of six Tutsis were hacked to death with machete and spear by militiamen and their Hutu neighbors. 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 they had lived in a muteness as enigmatic as the silence of those who endured the Nazi concentration camps. In Life Laid Bare, 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 them "life has broken down," while for others, it has "stopped," and still others say that it "absolutely must go on.""--BOOK JACKET.
