Abstract
The genocide against the Tutsi destroyed the social fabric of Rwanda, and its traumatic and violent consequences have received much attention amongst researchers. Yet less attention has been paid to stories of positive change. Alongside reconciliation at a national level, individual stories of resilience have emerged. This contribution aims to move beyond the dominant narratives of the genocide by examining the themes of resilience and post-traumatic growth in the contemporary testimonies of Rwandans.
