Personal testimony of the Rwandan Genocide
English translation of Yolande Mukagasana’s personal testimony of the Rwandan Genocide, Not My Time To Die is published by Huza Press.
Mukagasana’s book was originally released in 1997 as La mort ne veut pas de moi, making it one of the first civilian testimonies of the Rwandan Genocide.
« Acclaimed by both Gaël Faye and Véronique Tadjo, the book is crucial to individuating a collective crime and understanding the climate in which such a horror could occur.
In the nineteen-nineties, Mukagasana is a successful nurse and mother of three, but while planning a party for her wedding anniversary a rupture in the tense political climate makes her a target.
Marked as a Tutsi woman she is forced to flee for her life. Not My Time To Die charts her journey of guilt, familial betrayal and hope. »
The annual Kwibuka event commemorates the 1994 genocide.
 kwibuka is the Kinyarwanda word for ‘remember’
