Well, I am not sure. Look, France’s long-time indifference and complicity with the genocidaires are too large that they overshadow a late gesture like arresting the 84-year old Kabuga. It is a […]
A guest article by Philibert Muzima, a genocide survivor and author. Lorsque les rescapés du génocide des Tutsi du Rwanda sont traités de négationnistes, de faux survivants et, par effet de ricochet, leurs êtres chers tués durant le génocide devenant de “fausses victimes”, cela donne des frissons et la […]

Many ordinary Hutu made a deliberate choice to slaughter the Tutsi, just as others chose to resist the urge to kill the Tutsi including Simeon, who hid and saved me and a dozen other Tutsi during the genocide.
At first, many things did not make sense in my 10-year-old mind. I could not understand why we, the Tutsi, were hiding, being murdered in cold blood and our houses being burnt down while our Hutu neighbors were just living a normal life. Going to the market, bars, even celebrating weddings. But I quickly understood one thing: that being a Tutsi, or at least being identified as such, was a terrible crime punishable by horrific death. I also realized that my parents and grandparents were guilty of this crime too – the crime of having been born. A crime against the very who we were-Genocide.

Guest post by Mireille Ishimwe:
The song Mbahoze nte by Uwera Florida was playing in my earphones today, since I learned about the tragic passing of Fabienne Isimbi, a genocide survivor of almost my age. Ishimwe reflects on the tragic passing of her fellow young survivor, the cause of her death, and what it means to other survivors…
Frederick Nietzsche is not usually my favorite philosopher, but he was right when he said ‘’ What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger’’. These survivors are different in many ways but they […]
The news stories about the passing of Kofi Annan continue to float around in the media. Philip Gourevitch, one of the best writers on Rwanda genocide against the Tutsi makes his voice count as well. He eloquently discusses how Kofi Annan failed to express any shred of remorse towards his actions or inactions during the genocide of Tutsi in Rwanda and other mass atrocities crimes of the 90s. Gourevitch’s piece in the New Yorker today is definitely a must-read. Click to read more.
