An estimated two million people fled Rwanda to huge refugee camps in Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo) and Tanzania, where there was no protection against conflict. Some returned to Rwanda and others left for Europe, Canada, and the U.S. In this work, testimony from survivors of the Rwandan Genocide is embroidered on two long ribbons.
