In two previous works, journalist Hatzfeld offered a profound, harrowing witness to the pain and horror in the mass killings of one group of people by another. Combining his own analysis of the events with interviews from both Hutu killers and Tutsi survivors, he explored the psychology of evil, and of survival, in unprecedented depth. Now he returns to Rwanda seven years later to talk with both the Hutus and Tutsis he'd come to know--some of the killers who had been released from prison or returned from Congolese exile, and the Tutsi escapees who must now tolerate them as neighbors. How are they managing with the process of reconciliation? Do they think in their hearts it is possible? This is an astonishing exploration of the pain of memory, the nature of stoic hope, and the ineradicability of grief.--From publisher description.

This was a difficult book to read. I almost put it down for good near the middle since I figured I got the jest of what the author was saying. But, around the middle, the tone/prose becomes more poetic and the reader isn't faced with as much harrowing tragedy, although the book still focuses on the lives of survivors and killers. I'm still left with plenty of questions and looking for the next book on the UN and France's involvement (or lack of) in this situation.
