By Pierre-Claver Ndacyayisenga
Pierre-Claver Ndacyayisenga was a history teacher in Rwanda in 1994 when he was forced to flee to the neighboring Congo with his wife and three children. Thus began a five-year journey during which they and more than three hundred thousand other refugees were pursued and bombed by shadowy Rwandan-backed soldiers. Most did not live to tell the story.
Dying to Live is an ode to the human will to survive.
