Tested to the Limit: A Genocide Survivor’s Story of Pain, Resilience and Hope

“If there is one book you should read on the Rwandan Genocide, this is it. Tested to the Limit—A Genocide Survivor’s Story of Pain, Resilience, and Hope is a riveting and courageous account from the perspective of a 14-year-old girl. It’s a powerful story you will never forget.”
—Francine LeFrak, founder of Same Sky and award-winning producer

“That someone who survived such a horrific, life-altering experience as the Rwandan genocide could find the courage to share her story truly amazes me. But even more incredible is that Consolee Nishimwe refused to let the inhumane acts she suffered strip away her humanity, zest for life and positive outlook for a better future. After reading Tested to the Limit, I am in awe of the unyielding strength and resilience of the human spirit to overcome against all odds.”
—Kate Ferguson, senior editor, POZ magazine

“Consolee Nishimwe’s story of resilience, perseverance and grace after surviving genocide, rape and torture is a testament to the transformative power of unyielding faith and a commitment to love. Her inspiring narrative about compassionate courage and honest revelations about her spiritual path in the face of unthinkable adversity remind us that hope is eternal, and miracles happen every day.”
—Jamia Wilson, vice president of programs, Women’s Media Center, New York
