About Immaculée:
As a college student, Immaculée Ilibagiza's life took a turn during an Easter break as the genocide broke out in Rwanda between two tribes: the Hutus and the Tutsis. She and seven other women huddled silently together in a cramped 3'x4' bathroom of a local pastor's house for 91 days. During this horrific ordeal, Immaculée lost most of her family, but she survived to share the story of her miraculous transition into forgiveness and a profound relationship with God. Immaculée has spoken before a range of audiences including world dignitaries, multinational corporations, college and universities, churches and local school children. She has been recognized and honored with numerous humanitarian awards. She is the author of Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust, an international bestseller that has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide and been made into a documentary.
