Portraits of Reconciliation
Two decades after the Rwandan genocide, a photographer has gone to Rwanda to document the work of a non-profit organization that councils perpetrators and victims.  If a victim forgives the perpetrator, the perpetrator typically brings a basket of offerings and the accord is sealed with a song and dance.
This is the caption that goes with the above photo:

NDAHIMANA: “The day I thought of asking pardon, I felt unburdened and relieved. I had lost my humanity because of the crime I committed, but now I am like any human being.”
MUNGANYINKA: “After I was chased from my village and Dominique and others looted it, I became homeless and insane. Later, when he asked my pardon, I said: ‘I have nothing to feed my children. Are you going to help raise my children? Are you going to build a house for them?’ The next week, Dominique came with some survivors and former prisoners who perpetrated genocide. There were more than 50 of them, and they built my family a house. Ever since then, I have started to feel better. I was like a dry stick; now I feel peaceful in my heart, and I share this peace with my neighbors.”
