Immaculée Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family that she cherished.
But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into bloody holocaust. Immaculée’s family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans. Incredibly, Immaculée survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted for them.
The triumphant story of this remarkable young woman’s journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering and loss. Following the transformation of her life in the ten year’s since Left to Tell‘s first publication, this new edition of her bestselling memoir reflects on her spiritual transformation since those dark days.
Immaculée Ilibagiza (born 1972) is a Rwandan American author and motivational speaker. Her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust (2006), is an autobiographical work detailing how she survived during the Rwandan genocide.
