Paul Rusesabagina was an ordinary man – a quiet manager of the luxurious Hotel Milles Collines in Rwanda. But on April 6, 1994, mobs with machetes became cold-blooded murderers and commenced a slaughter of 800,000 civilians in just 100 days. Read that again – 800,000 citizens.  Rusesabagina, with incredible courage, refused to bow to the madness that surrounded him. Confronting killers with a combination of diplomacy, flattery, and deception, he offered shelter to more than twelve hundred members of the Tutsi clan and Hutu moderates, while homicidal mobs raged outside with machetes. In his autobiography, he tells his story and explores the complexity of Rwanda’s history and the insanity that turned friends and neighbours into killers.
