Victoria Schneider and Charles Cilliers Review Rat Roads by Jacques Pauw

Rat RoadsVerdict: carrot

If you only read one book about Rwanda and its infamous genocide, make it Jacques Pauw’s Rat Roads.

The book tells a remarkable story of a man who lived through the 1994 machete killings – the most intense and bloodiest example of genocide in modern history – only to later head out on an incredible journey on foot to find a better life here in South Africa.

Today, he’s a lawyer.
