    Story
    (31)

    As his country was being torn apart by violence during the Rwandan genocide of 1994, hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina, the "Oskar Schindler of Africa", refused to bow to the madness that surrounded him. Confronting killers with a combination of diplomacy, flattery, and deception, he offered shelter to more than 12,000 members of the Tutsi clan and Hutu moderates, while homicidal mobs raged outside with machetes.

    Lori J. Rosendahl says: "Not An Ordinary Memoir"
    "A Must read--Superb!"
    Overall

    Having worked in a Rwandan mission hospital with many who are survivors of this terrible event, this book is an incredible account of the happenings particularly in and around Kigali. It also gives an historical account of the events leading up to the clash between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes. Courage, savvy and a cool demeanor enable one man to save many. For another view, those interested in this event are also encouraged to read Romeo Dallaire's "Shake Hands with the Devil."
