Left to tell by immaculee ilibagiza

non-fiction biography, 256 PP

A powerful narrative, Left to Tell is by a young woman who survived the Rwandan genocide of the mid 1990s hidden in a bathroom for three months with seven other women. It is a raw story that exposes the atrocities of that Holocaust balanced with the incredible level of trust Immaculee placed in her faith. I learned of Left to Tell when it was chosen as an all-school read for my sons’ summer reading. How fortunate they were also able to hear Immaculee share her story in person at the start of their school year.
