What other readers are saying about this title:
Jennifer L. said:
Paul Rusesabagina the son of a Hutu father and a Tusti mother grew up in a rural village in Rwanda. In 1994 during the genocide, mass murder of the Tusti people, Paul was a general manager of a Belgian owned hotel in one of Rwanda's large cities. He saw his friends and neighbors turn into murderers before his very eyes and decided that he had to use the hotel to save as many Tusti and Hutu moderates as he could from being slaughtered. He managed to save over 1200 people using his fantastic persuasive speaking skills, cases of wine and beer, and favors owed to him by powerful men. This man was extrordinary. His story of the genocide while horrifying at times is gripping. His story inspired the movie Hotel Rwanda.
