Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by Immaculee Ilibagiza


Left to tell

“As a young girl, all I knew of the world was the lovely landscape surrounding me, the kindness of my neighbours, and the deep love of my parents, and brothers. In our home, racism, and prejudice were completely unknown. I wasn’t aware that people belonged to different tribes or races, and I didn’t even hear the terms Tutsi or Hutu until I was in school.” – Immaculee Ilibagiza

Imagine being a normal girl one day, you go to school, you hang out with your friends, you spend time with your family and then one day, that all changes. You are being hunted like an animal just because you were born in a different tribe and you spend 3 months hiding in a tiny bathroom with 7 other women. This is what happened to Immaculee.

Left to Tell is the autobiography of Immaculee Ilibagiza, a Tutsi survivor of the Rwandan Holocaust. It speaks of her life before, during and after those dark months. How she grieved the loss of her family, and how her faith and belief in God helped to keep her strong while being hunted by the Hutus.

Steve Erwin, the co writer of Left To Tell, states that while reading, your faith in God and the power of prayer will be strengthened. You’ll have to read the book to find out. For more information visit the Left to Tell Website, it’s also for sale on Amazon .
