Sociotherapy took me out of my solitude
Keywords:torture, genocide, Rwanda, victims
I am fifty-eight years old. I have been a widow since 1995. Because of the ethnic conflicts that reigned in Rwanda over a period of many years, I grew up and lived in different neighbouring countries. I returned to Rwanda in 1992, at the age of thirty-eight. I was born into a family of six children, four of whom died during the genocide. Only one sister and I are still alive. I married my husband in 1968 when I was fourteen years old. We had seven children together. Four are alive, the three others died during the genocide.
