Her Story

Immaculée Ilibagiza

Immaculée Ilibagiza is a living example of faith put into action. Her life was transformed dramatically during the 1994 Rwandan genocide when her family was murdered and she was confined in hiding for 91 days. After her experience, the anger and resentment she felt threatened to destroy her—until she found solace and peace in prayer, and eventually found it possible to forgive her tormentors and her family’s murderers.

In 1998 Immaculée immigrated to the United States where she worked with the UN and was encouraged by friends to share her story. Immaculée’s first book, Left to Tell; Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust, quickly became a New York Times Best Seller. To date it has been translated into fifteen languages worldwide.

Today Immaculée is regarded as one of world’s leading speakers on peace, faith, and forgiveness. She has been honored with numerous humanitarian awards including The Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace in 2007. She has shared her universal message with world dignitaries, school children, multinational corporations, churches, and at many conferences. Immaculée also seeks to spread her message and to raise money for her Left to Tell Charitable Fund, which directly benefits the children orphaned by the genocide.
