Twenty-five years ago Rwanda lived through the darkest chapter in its history. While much has been written about the Rwandan genocide many still believe that there is much more to say and much more to tell. Judi Rever, a Canadian investigative journalist, happens to be one of those people and has recently published a book that presents a story that differs from the official narrative. Her book, ‘In Praise of Blood’, was quickly translated into Dutch and published by the Amsterdam University Press as ‘De waarheid over Rwanda’. As part of her speaking tour in Flanders Judi has been invited to discuss her work and her findings.
