Immaculee: Hold Onto Hope

Episode 1 of 1

She survived the 1994 Rwandan genocide which left 800,000 people dead--including her parents--by hiding in a tiny bathroom with seven other women for 91 days. Immaculee tells her story of survival and forgiveness in Immaculee: Hold Onto Hope. The program features highlights from her speech at the Magnolia Performing Arts Pavilion on the Baton Rouge Community College campus. Ilibagiza is the author of two books, Left to Tell and Led By Faith: Rising From the Ashes of the Rwandan Genocide. Both books feature her survival stories and explain how she has found the strength to overcome the tragedy and forgive the people who perpetrated it. She hopes by speaking out and telling her story, it will help prevent future genocides and that her message of faith, hope, forgiveness, and reconciliation can help people seek peace in their own lives. Immaculee: Hold Onto Hope is a powerful pledge program that will change people's lives.
