Format: Taschenbuch
IN the province of Kibungo, in eastern Rwanda, near the Tanzanian border, there's a rocky hill called Nyarubuye, with a church where many Tutsis were slaughtered in April 1994. A year after the killing, I flew to Nyarubuye in a United Nations helicopter, low over the hills in the morning mists, with the banana trees like green starbursts dense over the slopes. The uncut grass blew back as we dropped into the centre of a parish schoolyard. A lone soldier materialised, and shook our hands with shy formality. I stepped up into the open doorway of a classroom. At least 50, mostly decomposed cadavers covered the floor, wadded in clothing, their belongings strewn about and smashed. Macheted skulls had rolled here and there. The dead looked like pictures of the dead. They did not smell. They did not buzz with flies. They had been killed 13 months earlier, and they hadn't been moved. Skin stuck here and there over the bones, many of which lay scattered from the bodies, dismembered by the killers, or by scavengers - birds, dogs, bugs. The more complete figures looked a lot like people, which they were once. A woman in a cloth wrap printed with flowers lay near the door. Her fleshless hip bones were high and her legs slightly spread, and a child's skeleton extended between them. Her torso was hollowed out. Her ribs and spinal column poked through the rotting cloth. Her head was tipped back and her mouth was open; a strange image - half agony, half repose. I had never been among the dead before. What to do? Look? Yes. I had come to see them. The dead had been left unburied at Nyarubuye for memorial purposes - and there they were, so intimately exposed. I didn't need to see them. I already knew, and believed, what had happened in Rwanda.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Format: Taschenbuch
Where to start? This IS an important book, and virtuallyeveryone would benefit from reading it. Gourevitch is horrified,saddened, and angry; he unabashedly takes sides, excoriating Hutu Power, the U.N. and humanitarian agencies with equal vigor. Unexpectedly (for me, at least), what is more shocking about the book isnot the premediated mass murder of a race of people, but the international community's wholly inadequate, misguided and hypocritical response to the genocide. Having said that, I must say that Gourevitch's writing leaves a lot to be desired. Rather than letting the story tell itself, Philip Gourevitch pauses frequently to ponder Life, Humanity, War, Philip Gourevitch--all the while quoting liberally from European texts as if to prove how well read he is. This might work if Gourevitch were as insightful and original a philosopher as he thinks he is. As it stands, though, his garbled musings (the genocide as a "postmodern war"? Puhleeze!) underscore the vast gulf between Gourevitch as the ultimate outsider/observer--with a safe home in a safe country to return to--and his anguished and displaced subjects. Still, the book's definitely worth reading.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde on 22. Januar 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Edmund Burke said that "the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." This book drives home the real world truth of this aphorism. It presents a detailed but never boring overview of the history of Rwanda leading up to the massacre of nearly a million people in three months time as the whole world knowingly stood by in silence. Worse, Gourevitch is convincing that some nations were actively complicit in the events he describes. To his credit, Gourevitch largely avoids graphic descriptions of specific murders, preferring simple declarative statements that this person or that was later killed, or that person's corpse was later found, etc. The technique leaves the terror of the doomed to the reader's imagination and does so most effectively. But two aspects of the book stand out most to me. First, it shows how a genocide actually happens and progresses from political rhetoric to reality. Second, it is a stern demand for answers as to why the genocide was allowed to happen in the first place. Most of us probably relate to the Holocaust as a distant, historical event driven by Hitler's singular evil. Most of us probably believe that "it could never happen again." It can. It did. And unless we learn from this wonderful, important book, it will again. Thank you, Philip Gourevitch, for your years of effort (at what must have been a great personal cost) to bring this story to the world's attention.

Von Symmachus on 5. September 2013
Format: Taschenbuch
A moving but also deeply disturbing book that brings home to readers not only how we ignored the Hutu genocide against Tutsis and the mass murder of Hutu moderates, but how aid organizations then mobilized and in effect helped the very people who had committed the crimes. Was it laziness, passion fatigue, bureaucracy, cowardice? But then the United Nations screwed up in Bosnia, too, and over Saddam Hussein's brutalization of Iraq, and now (or so it seems likely to happen) in Syria. Nobody seems to be learning anything - except to be even more timid next time. The people in the mass graves pay the price.

I cannot use enough superlatives to review this book. Gourevitch's writing is impeccable, beautiful, and deeply disturbing. The experiences and events he describes are overshadowed in their intensity only by the appalling politics of the international community, and individual acts of courage or cowardice by those who survived the genocide. Reading this book, I realized my own ignorance of the Rwandan crisis where 800,000 died in 100 days, and felt guilt because of that ignorance. It has opened my eyes in the greatest possible sense, and I list it as the most important book I have read in the past few years.
