_Deogratias: A Tale of Rwanda_ by Stassen

This short graphic novel tells the tale of one boy of Rwanda, whose life has been ruined by the genocide of 1994.

It begins with a prologue that describes the circumstances of the conflict between Hutus and Tutsis that killed eight hundred thousand people in only a hundred days. It has powerful images in both senses of the word: great art, great dialogue, and a great, if terrible, story, that flashes between the time before the massacre and the time after.
