Title: Reconciliation in Rwanda - Stories of Rescue

URL: http://employees.oneonta.edu/conwaypg/rwandablog/index.html/

Description: In English, French and Kinyarwanda. In the aftermath of 20th century genocides, many stories that were told by survivors described “bystanders” and rescuers as well as the perpetrators who tortured and killed helpless victims. The survivors of Rwanda’s 1994 catastrophe likewise identified countless individuals who risked their own lives to save others. Increasingly, the stories of heroic rescuers, including many who died as a result of their courageous efforts, are documented and widely appreciated for their educational and inspirational value. The website includes text transcripts of testimonies by survivors.
