The night of April 6, 1994, in Rwanda was like many others for
Hadidja Nyiransekuye and her family. Yet the next morning when they
awakened, turned on Radio Rwanda, and heard nothing but dead air,
Hadidja's husband had a premonition-something was wrong. It turns
out, he was right. Overnight, the Rwandan President had died in a
plane crash, Prime Minister Agathe had been shot, and the killing
of innocent people had already begun.
In her memoir, "The Lances Were Looking Down," Hadidja shares
her incredible journey before, during, and after the one hundreds
days of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Nothing had prepared Hadidja,
her family, and other Rwandans for the magnitude of the carnage and
the barbarism that followed the death of the president. When all
was said and done, more than eight hundred thousand people would
lie dead in the streets; their country would never be the same.
As Hadidja leads others through the heartbreaking, shocking, and
disturbing events that caused the self-destruction of a beautiful
country and its people, she also shares her hopes and fears for her
fellow Rwandans, proving that no matter what the tragedy, an
unyielding love for family, friends, and country will always
triumph over evil.
