It chronicles what has happened in Rwanda since 1994, when the government called on the Hutu majority to murder the Tutsi minority. Some 800,000 people were exterminated in a hundred days. A Tutsi pastor, in a letter to his church president, a Hutu, used the chilling phrase that give the book its title. The author descibes the anguish of genocide's aftermath: mass displacements; revenge and the quest for justice; and impossibly crowded prisons and refugee camps. Through portraits of Rwandans in all walks of life, he focuses on the psychological and political challenges of survival.Hide synopsis

This is an absolutely heart-wrenching account of the Rwandan genocide! There were times that the reading got so heavy, I had to put the book down for a few days and walk away...just truly an intensely sad journey through what many Tutsi people suffered through at the hands of the Hutus...props to the author for going into such devistated areas to find as real a story as he could...I know I wouldn't have the courage to face what he did! VERY GRAPHIC (violent) WRITING (although necessary in this case to show the true nature of the Rwandan genocide (and war in general?!?!?)...)!!!
