Book of Life celebrates memory of Rwandan genocide victims

Listen /

Odile Gakire Katese

It has been 18 years since the genocide in Rwanda, and on Wednesday the UN remembers the victims in its annual commemoration of this tragedy.

Rwandan playwright Odile Gakire Katese has compiled what she calls 'The Book of Life.' It features some 100 letters from widows and orphans to their lost loved ones, but also letters written by perpetrators to their victims. In this interview with UN Radio's Cristina Silveiro, Odile Gakire Katese says 'The Book of Life' aims to reconcile Rwandans with life, hope and the future.
