Summary
"Darfuri refugee camps in Chad, Kigali in Rwanda, and the ruins of ancient villages in Turkey--all visited by genocide, all still reeling in its wake. In Journey through Genocide, Raffy Boudjikanian travels to communities that have survived genocide to understand the legacy of this most terrible of crimes against humanity. In this era of ethnic and religious wars, mass displacements, and forced migrations, Boudjikanian looks back at three humanitarian crises. In Chad, meet families displaced by massacres in neighbouring Darfur and Sudan, their ordeal still raw. In Rwanda, meet a people struggling with justice and reconciliation. And in Turkey, explore what it means to still be afraid a century after Boudjikanian's own ancestors were caught in the Armenian Genocide of 1915"--Back cover
Summary
Canadian journalist Raffy Boudjikanian travels to three places that have been involved in genocide in order to understand its legacy, including Darfuri refugee camps in Chad, Kigali in Rwanda, and ancient villages in Turkey, where the Armenian Genocide of 1915 took place.
