Mr. Rusesabagina succinctly explains the complex history of his country, his extraordinary rise to chief manager of the premiere luxury hotel, and details the precarious and deadly situation during one hundred days of complete chaos in Rwanda.

 Through years of racial propaganda and sparked by the assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana,  Rwandan turns neighbor against neighbor leading to complete and unimaginable genocide. 

Between April 6 and July 4, 1994, 800,000 of his countrymen were slaughtered.  The author was able to shelter and save the lives of over 1,200 refugees and hotel patrons.  "I was doing the job [in which I had been] entrusted...I am a hotel manager"

This story inspired the film Hotel Rwanda.  So much to learn from the efforts of one man.
