Powerful accounts by genocide survivors; a journalist seeking to bear witness to their pain.



Darfuri refugee camps in Chad, Kigali in Rwanda, and the ruins of ancient villages in Turkey -- all visited by genocide, all still reeling in its wake. In Journey through Genocide , Raffy Boudjikanian travels to communities that have survived genocide to understand the legacy of this most terrible of crimes against humanity.



In this era of ethnic and religious wars, mass displacements, and forced migrations, Boudjikanian looks back at three humanitarian crises. In Chad, meet families displaced by massacres in the Darfur region of neighbouring Sudan, their ordeal still raw. In Rwanda, meet a people struggling with justice and reconciliation. And in Turkey, explore what it means to still be afraid a century after the author's own ancestors were caught in the Armenian Genocide of 1915.



Clear-eyed and compassionate, Boudjikanian breathes life into horrors that too often seem remote.
