It was 25 years ago last month, and Rwanda erupted in violence. Do you remember that horrific event? I was in a French congregation at the time, and we were all praying for our French-speaking brothers there. A YouTube video documentary discussed the genocide, and many survivors were interviewed. Charles and Angelique Rutaganira and Tharcisse and Chantal Seminega, our brothers and sisters, tell how they evaded death at the hands of killers because they were rescued by Hutu Jehovah’s Witnesses who risked their lives to save them. The survivors related how the Rwandan Witness community held to their nonviolent and apolitical Christian ethic, refusing to participate in the genocide and taking extreme risks to shelter Tutsi. Interviews with brothers and sisters start at the 36:23 mark.
