Immaculee is Rwandan and lost most of her family in the genocide in 1994. She stayed hidden in a small bathroom with 7 other woman for three months, and spent the majority of her time praying. Somehow, amidst all the horror and atrocities, but on the strength of her faith, she was able to forgive those responsible for the killings. ( )

Summary: The painful story of a young woman who had to live in a tiny bathroom to protect her life as horror and tragedy abounded during the Rwandan holocaust. ( )

LEFT TO TELL is an important witness to the horrors of the Rwandan holocaust--a story not present enough in American awareness. While I found the theology and prose simplistic, I appreciated Ilibagiza's resilient and lively voice. Her story is definitely a testimony to the power of faith to sustain us through horrific times.

My sister-in-law, Colleen, recommended I read this many years ago. I finally read it and was very moved by Immaculee's story. It's a haunting tale, but how she survived through her faith was incredibly inspiring. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To my beloved parents, Leonard and Rose; and my dear brothers Damascene and Vianney, for all the selfless love you gave me. You make heaven a brighter place, and I will love you always.

For my brother Aimable, with much love and in hopes of healing unspoken pain.

And to my new family -- Bryan and our sweet babies, Nikki and Bryan, Jr. -- for giving me a new life, love, and inspiration. You make my life complete. In memory of holocaust victims everywhere.
