This is my story, told as I remember it … and I remember it as though it happened yesterday. It's a true story; I use my own name and the names of my family.
This is the story of how I discovered God during one of history's bloodiest holocausts. I wrote this book hoping that others may benefit from my story.-Immaculee Ilibagiza
In the spring of 1994, more than one million people were murdered in the Rwandan genocide. This is the story of how Immaculee survived certain death, along with seven other women, by hiding in a very small bathroom for more than 3 months. Day after day, for months, the killers would search nearby - gleefully chanting "kill them big, kill them small, kill them, kill them, kill them all!"
With uncommon sincerity, Immaculee shares with us her soul's struggle through disbelief to anger and rage and, ultimately, forgiveness. She is living proof of the power of prayer and positive thinking
