Rwanda: genocide non-survivor

Rwandan Survivors posts a letter from a survivor of the Rwandan genocide….”am 26 and I am a genocide survivor. Sincerely speaking, I have got no words to express the genocide. It is something that can end on a political aspect but for survivors, this crime is everlasting. You are called genocide survivor but actually you are not! You just try to move along with others without any basis just like a shot trying to grow up without roots”


  • Hello, I am looking to have an online chat with a genocide survivor for my history assignment.

  • What kind of experiences did the genocide survivor have? What were you doing there? What was it like? Was it scary why? I would like LOTS of DETAILS.
