Miracle in Kigali Rwanda Launch July 2008

We travelled to Kigali, capital of Rwanda, on 12 July 2008 to launch Miracle in Kigali at Hotel des Mille Collines. This is the hotel from the film 'Hotel Rwanda'. The launch event was staged in the hotel's top floor conference facilities on the evening of Thursday 19 July. Our guest of honour was the Hon. Joseph Habineza, Minister of Culture and Sport, who paid tribute to Illuminee's bravery and encouraged us to publish the book in Kinyarwanda. An audience of 150, including most of the Rwandan media, heard Illuminee speak very movingly about her experiences. The photograph shows Illuminee, signing a book for one of the guests, with her brother Eustache on her right.
