When the Hills Ask for Your Blood free pdf "Complex, compassionate and scathing." (Giles Foden, author of THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND). "Tremendous. A moving and haunting tribute to the human spirit." (WILLIAM BOYD). 6 April 1994: In the skies above Rwanda the President's plane is shot down in flames. In the chapel of a hillside village, missionary priest Vjeko Curic prepares to save thousands. Near Kigali, Jean-Pierre holds his family close, fearing for their lives. The mass slaughter that follows - friends against friends, neighbours against neighbours - is one of the bloodiest chapters in history. Twenty years on, BBC Newsnight producer David Belton, one of the first journalists into Rwanda, tells of the horrors he experienced at first-hand. Following the threads of Jean-Pierre and Vjeko Curic's stories, he revisits a country still marked with blood, in search of those who survived and the legacy of those who did not. This is David Belton's personal quest for the limits of bravery and forgiveness. Published on the twentieth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide
