Françoise Rudahunga


Rwandan Survivor

Françoise Rudahunga was 17 when the 1994 Rwandan genocide took place. Both of her parents were killed, as were her older brother and sister. Rudahunga and her younger brother saw their mother die, and were hacked with machetes and left to die themselves. They survived and were brought to the United States by their uncle, who adopted them.
