Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
"Hutu töten Tutsi, im Gegenzug töten Tutsi Hutu -- wenn das tatsächlich alles sein sollte, worum es geht, dann wundert es nicht, daß wir uns nicht darum kümmern", schreibt Philip Gourevitch, wenn er sich die Reaktion einer Person vorstellt, die in einem Land weitab der ethnischen Auseinandersetzungen und der Massentötungen von Ruanda lebt. Aber die Situation läßt sich nicht so vereinfachen. In diesem komplexen und aufreibenden Buch erklärt er, warum der Völkermord in Ruanda nicht als eine von vielen Stammesstreitigkeiten abgetan werden sollte.

Bei den "Geschichten", von denen im Untertitel des Buchs die Rede ist, handelt es sich sowohl um die Versuche des Autors, bei seinen mehrmaligen Besuchen in diesem kleinen Land zu verstehen, was passiert ist, als auch um die Geschichten derjenigen, die er interviewte. Darunter ist eine Tutsi-Ärztin, die mit ansehen mußte, wie ein Großteil ihrer Familie in jahrzehntelanger Unterdrückung der Tutsi umgebracht wurde, ein schindlerähnlicher Hotelmanager, der Hunderte von Flüchtlingen vor dem sicheren Tod versteckte, und ein Bischof aus Ruanda, der der Beihilfe bei dem Massaker an Tutsi-Schulkindern beschuldigt wird und diese Anklage nur mit den Worten "Was hätte ich tun sollen?" beantworten kann. Gourevitch, Redakteur beim New Yorker, der Ruandas Geschichte anschaulich und eindrucksvoll beschreibt, dokumentiert die Erfahrung der Tragödie mit nüchternem Charme. Zusammen mit dem Autor wird sich der Leser fragen: "Warum geschieht dies alles? Und warum bemühen wir uns nicht darum, daß das alles ein Ende hat?" --Maria Dolan -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"[It is the] sobering voice of witness that Gourevitch has vividly captured in his work."―Wole Soyinka, " The New York Times Book Review" "[Gourevitch] has the mind of a scholar along with the observative capacity of a good novelist, and he writes like an angel. This volume establishes him as the peer of Michael Herr, Ryszard Kapuscinski, and Tobias Wolff. I think there is no limit to what we may expect from him."―Robert Stone "A sobering, revealing, and deeply thoughtful chronicle."―"The Boston Globe" "The most important book I have read in many years . . . [Gourevitch] examines [the genocidal war in Rwanda] with humility, anger, grief and a remarkable level of both political and moral intelligence."―Susie Linfield, " Los Angeles Times" "Shocking and important . . . clear and balanced . . . the voice in this book is meticulous and humane."--Michael Pearson, "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution" "Astonishing . . . [Gourevitch] is masterful at pl

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... ›

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.

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.

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.

Having never studied history, political science or the like as a student I came across this book quite by accident in a Leeds bookshop. I think it was the ancient question of WHY? that encouraged me to buy it - WHY? the holocaust? WHY? Bosnia? WHY? evil in this world? I just couldn't understand the mass murder of so many people and after reading his book - I must admit I still can't. The thing that struck me was the shockingly irresponsible behaviour of the UN, the Aid agencies, the EU (esp. France) and generally anybody who could have stopped the genocide. This book should be distibuted to all the leaders of the western democracies(?) and serve as a wake up call to those that see themselves as guardians of the new world order. How very appallingly they have all behaved. I think what is really evident from his writing is the good character of those in Africa that really want to lead an African Renaissance. Those that really have any hope in rectifying the problems that currently plague Africa are Africans, Philip will agree with me on what a bloody awful mess we (the post-imperial nations) have made of the situation, and continue to do so. I say good luck to President Kagame and thanks to Philip for shouting in the darkness - let's hope someone hears him. Fab - recommended reading for all who call themselves human.
