Each survivor of the Rwandan genocide has a story to tell. View this BBC Online slide show to read some survivors' stories: In pictures: Rwanda--the survivors.
In Season of Evil, an article in the Village Voice, a young woman, recalls how she and her grandmother narrowly escaped being killed. She was 9 years old then.
Eyewitness: a survivor's story is a BBC Online story about an 11-year-old young boy who survived the genocide, but lost a leg.
