NON VI DIMENTICHEREMO Murambi, tombe collettive.Questa non è solo una storia africana. Non è solo una lotta tra hutu e tutsi. È una storia che riguarda l’umanità intera. Perché non esistono essere umani più umani degli altri. Murambi, Memoriale del Genocidio.Nel più piccolo paese dell’Africa, il Rwanda, in un territorio di poco più grande della Sicilia, in un paesaggio che a volte ricorda le Langhe, altre la Svizzera, tra il 6 aprile e la metà di luglio del 1994 si è consumato il genocidio più cruento e rapido della storia dell’umanità: si calcola che in circa cento giorni siano stati uccisi un milione di rwandesi, per la maggior parte tutsi (il calcolo attualmente si è avvicinato al milione e duecentomila morti, di cui i tutsi furono l’80%). Gli assassini furono efficientissimi e riuscirono ad ammazzare anche più di diecimila persone in un solo giorno (quattrocento morti all’ora, uno ogni sette minuti).Tuttora in Rwanda si continuano a scoprire fosse comuni.Murambi: si stava costruendo una Scuola Tecnica secondaria – il vescovo locale spinse la popolazione tutsi a rifugiarsi in questo luogo per via della presunta protezione delle truppe francesi – il conto dei morti arriva a 65.000 – adesso gli edifici destinati alla scuola sono stati trasformati in un memoriale del genocidio.A dieci anni dai fatti, io ho voluto essere presente alle commemorazioni del genocidio oltre che per documentare le cerimonie, funebri e non, ufficiali e non, per vedere come sta il paese: per vedere soprattutto come sta la gente, come ha reagito all’orrore, come vive o sopravvive.“Ntituzabibagirwa” è scritto sulle croci delle tombe a Murambi, nel sudovest del paese, dove furono trucidati almeno sessantamila persone, bambini e vecchi inclusi, donne e uomini. Per me sarà impossibile dimenticare. Spero di non essere il solo.Le mille colline.Se un difetto, uno e uno solo, posso indicare per questo splendido e devastante racconto è la mancanza di note, come nella consuetudine statunitense: lo fanno per facilitare la lettura, ma io ne ho sentito la mancanza. Per il resto, che dire? Già il titolo è un pugno nello stomaco, come il resto.Probabilmente il libro più bello mai scritto sul genocidio rwandese.

Gourevitch was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to painter Jacqueline Gourevitch and philosophy professor Victor Gourevitch, a translator of Jean Jacques Rousseau He and his brother Marc, a physician, spent most of their childhood in Middletown, Connecticut, where their father taught at Wesleyan University from 1967 to 1995 Gourevitch graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut.Gourevitch knew that he wanted to be a writer by the time he went to college He attended Cornell University He took a break for three years in order to concentrate fully on writing He eventually graduated in 1986 In 1992 he received a Masters of Fine Arts in fiction from the Writing Program at Columbia University Gourevitch went on to publish some short fiction in literary magazines, before turning to non fiction.. Bestseller Kindle We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families To be honest, Gourevitch's book doesn't sound inviting. What book about genocide could? And its title alone suggests a kind of vicious, heart-stopping sadness that many of us would prefer to turn away from. Which may, in fact, be the point. Either way, Gourevitch's writing won't let you turn away. He tells the story of the Rwandan genocide in a prose so wonderfully crafted and infused with anger and insight as to be nearly hypnotic. From the opening pages, the young reporter confronts his own very mixed emotions as he tours a schoolhouse where decomposed cadavers, piled two and three high, carpet the floors of several rooms."I had never been among the dead before," he writes. "What to do? Look? Yes. I wanted to see them, I suppose; I had come to see them . . . Yet looking at the buildings and the bodies, and hearing the silence of the place, with the grand Italianate basilica standing there deserted, and beds of exquisite, decadent, death-fertilized flowers blooming over the corpses it was still strangely unimaginable. I mean one still had to imagine it.”This is precisely what Gourevitch so brilliantly accomplishes in We Wish to Inform You: allowing us to imagine, with uncomfortable immediacy, such unimaginable inhumanity. It took 100 days in 1994 for ruling Hutus to slaughter 800,000 of their Tutsi countrymen. But such a statistic only cracks open the door to a world where the victims were killed not by gas or ovens but with swinging machetes; where preachers presided over the killing of their parishes, husbands over the killing of their wives; where the French army intervened in favor of the killers and the U.S. government didn't intervene at all; and where the United Nations peacekeepers, before abandoning the country altogether, fired their weapons only to stop dogs from eating the corpses. Apparently, international concern was focused more on disease than genocide.Through a myriad of interviews -- with unflagging energy he talks to survivors, killers, politicians and generals -- Gourevitch helps bring a dose of understanding and even, improbably, hope to the madness. He is at his most interesting, though, when speculating on the fate of Rwandan society. In a remarkable bit of analysis, he suggests that the very fact of Rwandan culture that helped usher in the killing -- Rwandans' tendency to do as they are told -- may, in fact, help restore calm. How else can the government integrate so many killers back into society except to order that it be so?Read the full review here: http://bit.ly/2dZMCvO
