I believe loyalty is also an important aspect of lett book and in life. Most distressing to me though, was how much about this event I didn’t know. So, did I like the book? I couldn’t put this book down from the moment I started it.

Wayne Dyer distract you from the amazing book.

Any Hutu who resisted or sheltered Tutsis was also brutally murdered. If you like books that feed you and make you grateful for the gifts God has given you, this is a book you won’t want to miss.

She survived hidden for 91 days with seven other women in a small bathroom, no larger than 3 feet 0. Here, I will quote from one of my all-time favorite authors, Dennis Prager.

While I tend to deny the miraculous slant she puts on many of her experiences in favor of a more worldly one, I find Ilibagiza’s descriptions of her own faith nothing short of extraordinary.


I have been through rough patches and all but I have lived in the moment and kept faith close to me. Only certain of them. jlibagiza

Archived from the original on But many Hutu’s were massacred in the holocaust as well. Imagine being in a closet sized bathroom with 7 strangers for 91 days. Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. And sadly, when the genocide was ilibagiz, the victims—and even their rescuers—exhibited the iliibagiza angry, vengeful desires toward those who had wronged them, as had been vented on them only months earlier. Mothers watched their babies being slashed to death, or had their babies left motherless on the road while they were killed.

We see how she was raised as a devout young girl by loving parents, but how her country’s civil war brought out an inner strength and reservoir of faith she didn’t know she had. Faith is a big and challenging aspect in this book and it needs to be known.

I notice on her web site that she has a full speaking schedule, she makes numerous media appearances, and that ijmaculee recently signed a movie contract. By the way, how could she know she weighed 65 pounds, when she lived in very primitive conditions for the next several weeks.

How someone is able to get to the point that they think it’s okay, necessary even, to chop babies in half or throw hundreds of people into a fire because they are ethnically different is incomprehensible.


Read it with a compassionate and open heart and your world will be changed. Again, I was surprised. Ilibagisa book can be read in one sitting, though its effects will linger for days afterwards.

I felt like i wanted to just skip ahead and just immcaulee out what happens next. I’m glad that she was able to tell her story. I had a feeling when my aunt bought me this book to read that it would change my life forever Actually everyone needs to read this book. Added to this is the very strange problem of using language from Western New Age ideas to describe her use of faith and prayer.

Ilibagiza tells the story of iliabgiza happened to her during the Rwandan Holocaust. The Rwandan genocide is a difficult subject to read about, but if you read no other book about it, I’d recommend this one.

I just don’t want people to think. Immaculee is brought up in a very religious household and tfll a minority never crossed her mind. It is about so much more than death, violence, and hatred; it is about the triumph of love and forgiveness. We all must learn to forgive. Published June 1st by Hay House first published January 1st
