Every April for 20 years now, Rwandan-born Dafroza Gauthier, 59, an industrial chemist, is reminded of the genocide. Among its victims were her 69-year-old mother and relatives from the extended family. "I can't tell you the numbers killed, there were so many," she tells DW, seated in the cozy terraced house she shares with her husband Alain, 65, a retired French teacher, in Reims, France. The couple has been married for nearly 40 years. They've raised children and grandchildren and consider themselves ordinary French citizens. But the genocide changed them. The genocide changed everything. "It's impossible to live a normal life after a genocide," says Dafroza, who is Tutsi. She is tall, with elongated features, and possesses the regal bearing of a gazelle in a casual pullover and stretch jeans that accentuate her gamin looks. For the past 13 years Dafroza and Alain have tracked fugitives who fled the Rwandan genocide and settled in France. Some of the people they've found have led … [Read more...] about ‘If my family’s killers apologized to me, I’d forgive them’
Two weeks after its defeat in federal elections, a disagreement on the future course for Germany's conservative opposition has broken out within the Christian Democratic Union. On Friday, CDU chairwoman Angela Merkel, who was also recently elected to head the opposition in parliament, told a German newsmagazine the conservatives should give greater priority to environmental and family concerns in order to gain the support of women and liberal urban voters. Though the Sept. 22 election ended with the CDU and Schröder’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) neck-and-neck -- each with 38.5 percent of the vote -- the Green Party’s gains ensured the SPD-Green coalition led by Chancellor Gerhard Schröder could stay in power. Now Edmund Stoiber -- the joint chancellor candidate for the CDU and its Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union -- has returned to his duties as Bavarian premier and left the national stage open to Merkel, his pre-election rival.
