Abstract
First paragraph: After the genocide against the Tutsi in 1994, many Rwandan survivors had lost absolutely everything: their families, their homes, their belongings; their lives were totally destroyed. Many were left with severe physical and psychological wounds. In her Foreword to this volume, Esther Mujawayo-Keiner tells of her own loss in what is also a story of remarkable personal strength. Since experiencing the death of most of her family members, then building the AVEGA community, Esther has continued to touch the lives of many individuals in Rwanda and abroad, some of whom share their testimonies in this book. Like all survivors, Esther’s personal experience of the genocide is unique. Indeed, her current situation as an author and psychotherapist now living in Germany, may give her a different perspective on Rwanda from survivors still living there.
