Synopsis

Before that fateful April day, Jeanne lived the life of a typical Rwandan girl. She bickered with her little sister, went to school, teased her brother. Then, in one horrifying night, everything changed. Political troubles unleashed a torrent of violence upon the Tutsi ethnic group. Jeanne's family, all Tutsis, fled their home and tried desperately to reach safety.



They did not succeed. As the only survivor of her family's massacre, Jeanne witnessed unspeakable acts. This haunting story was told to Jeanne's adoptive mother, and here she makes unforgettably real the events of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

Hanna and Jeanne live in Siegburg, Germany, with Hanna's husband and the couple's twelve other children, most of whom are war orphans. Elizabeth Crawford's translations have earned many honours, including the Mildred L. Batchelor Award for outstanding translation of a children's book.
