Between April 6 and July 4, 1994, the genocide of the Tutsis and the massacres of moderate Hutus did about a million dead in Rwanda.

While in the country massacres were committed on a large scale, at Ntarabana in northern Rwanda, Rugwiza Frodouald and Mukankundiye Anne-Marie hid and protected Tutsi risking their lives.

Shortly after the end of the genocide, Murekaze Anastasia a genocide survivor, was able to find the strength to forgive and reconcile with those who had murdered her husband and children.
