“Destroyed in our hearts and minds” | Tutsi Survivor | Women’s History Month | USC Shoah Foundation

“She told me that I was HIV positive, and it was the hardest thing for me to hear. [I] was still struggling with the pain of rape and all the things – I’m not healed yet – and then now hearing that I’m HIV positive [and] I have to live with this – it was not easy.”

March is Women’s History Month in the United States.

In her USC Shoah Foundation testimony, Tutsi survivor Consolee Nishimwe discusses violence against women during genocide.

In 2013, the Visual History Archive expanded beyond the Holocaust for the first time, taking in 147 audiovisual testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. That set of atrocities claimed as many as one million lives over the course of about 100 days in 1994 when government-backed militias of ethnic Hutus went on a mass killing spree targeting the country’s next largest ethnic group, the Tutsis.

The Visual History Archive contains the testimonies of 147 survivors and rescuers of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda. They were recorded in Rwanda and the United States by the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center and by the USC Shoah Foundation between 2004 and 2011. The interview language is either Kinyarwanda or English; all the Kinyarwanda testimonies have English subtitles. Learn more about the collection at https://sfi.usc.edu/collections/rwandan.
