In a firsthand account, "Left to Tell: Discovering God amidst the Rwandan Holocaust" author Immaculée Ilibagiza shares her experience during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. For 91 days Ilibagiza hid in a small bathroom with seven other women listening helplessly to the slaughter of nearly one million Tutsis - men, women, and children. It was during those endless hours of unspeakable terror that she discovered the power of prayer and eventually let go of her fear of death and forged a profound and lasting relationship with God.
