How to tell the unspeakable ? How to speak about leaving a beloved place ? About the circumstances in which you had to flee the craddle of chilhood, one day, hiding, on roads scattered with bodies, blood, and silence ? How to tell those who were out there, far from us, where the informations were superficial about the genocide that was dissolving the whole of Rwanda ?
I returned to Rwanda on several occasions, I was able see the members of my family who are still alive. I was able to live the emptiness left by those who had died. I was able to hear testimonies from my close friends or from those to whom you lend a listening ear. I want to speak though the eyes of those who have seen. I want to share the words of those who were there.
