In 1994 while nations everywhere stood idly by 800000 people were slaughtered in eight weeks in Rwanda Arriving as US Ambassador to neighboring Burundi a few weeks later Bob Krueger began drawing international attention to the genocide also proceeding in Burundi where he sought to minimize the killing and to preserve its fledgling democratic government from destruction by its own army From Bloodshed to Hope in Burundi is a compelling eyewitness account of both a horrific and persistent genocide and of the ongoing efforts of many courageous individuals to build a just societyKrueger and his wife Kathleen graphically document the slaughter occurring all around them as well as their repeated efforts to get the US government and the international community to take notice and take action Bob Krueger reconstructs the events of the military coup that precipitated the Burundi genocide and describes his efforts to uncover the truth by digging up graves and interviewing survivors In straightforward and powerful language Kathleen Krueger recounts her family's experience living amid civil war including when she faced down a dozen AK 47 wielding African soldiers to save the life of a household workerFrom Bloodshed to Hope in Burundi shines a piercing light on a genocide that has gone largely unreported and identifies those responsible for it It also offers hope that as the truth emerges and the perpetrators are brought to account the people of Burundi will at last achieve peace and reconciliation

    This book ends the Bs in my project of reading at least one book about every nation and among the As and Bs it is the fifth about a country that has experienced genocide Burundi is the southern neighbor of Rwanda and its post colonial history of conflict between the Hutu majority and Tutsi minority mirrors that of its northern neighboring state if on a smaller scale as though the systematic racially motivated murder of hundreds of thousands of Hutus can be considered small by any comparison other than to that of than a millionUS Ambassador Robert Krueger's post to Burundi in 1994 1995 positioned him and his family at a bird's eye view of the ethnic cleansing perpetrated by the Burundi army after it's assassination of President Melchior Ndadaye whose democratic reforms threatened Tutsi power As an antidote to the Tutsi political leadership's common refrain that accusations of genocide were mere rumor Krueger ventured into the killing fields at significant risk to his own safety to document the testimony of survivors in the immediate aftermath of acts of genocide and to photograph the bodies of the slain Presenting numerous photographs of mutilated bodies and countless survivor narratives the book served to establish the facts of genocide in a country otherwise largely ignored by the international community The book with chapters authored by both Ambassador Krueger and his wife Kathleen is easy to read and obviously written by people who held great concern for and offered tangible help to the Burundian victims The authors' ambassadorial work did much to bring international pressure to bear against the genocidal government Mr Krueger risked both his career and his physical safety sometimes violating the genteel dictates of diplomatic tradition to sound the alarm on behalf of Burundians Though this is the story as told by the Kruegers themselves the narrative details ring true Though there is on occasion reason to be not a little cynical about American policy in Africa the actions of the US Ambassador to Burundi during its 1994 1995 genocide transcended policy and exemplified the best of compassion and selfless service
