Rwanda: Living Forgiveness
Rwanda: Living Forgiveness • 27m
In 1994, the long and painful history of the small African country of Rwanda came to a dreadful climax: the genocide and a death toll of approximately one million, within three months. Pain and suffering have engraved themselves on the souls of the people, but there are also clear signs of hope and restoration. Witnesses of the change speak out; victims and perpetrators likewise refer to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It's almost unbelievable!
The frankness of the murderers and the relatives of the victims is remarkable. Nothing is glossed over, yet they continue to seek after a process of reconciliation. As they share their everyday lives and even drive through the countryside together in order to tell their reconciliation story, we are brought face to face with basic human truths that confront us all.
