Tonight on Foreign Correspondent how Rwandans are dealing with atrocities of the past at a very personal level.
This is a story of love, hope and forgiveness overcoming evil.
During the Rwandan genocide 25 years ago, thousands of women were raped and bore the child of their attacker. For some of these women, like Rose, their baby’s face was their attacker’s; today Rose and her now adult daughter still struggle to relate to each other, but they’re working at it. For others like Eugenie, her two children born from rape were loved unconditionally.
Now those kids are coming of age and making successful careers – a reflection of how Rwandans have been able to forgive, but not forget, and to create a new prosperity out of the darkness.
