Robert Lyons, “Agnes Mukeshima; Rescape, Age 15, 1998," Agnes Mukeshima lives in Rural Butare, in a small village and survived by hiding in the bush for 3 months while the genocide was taking place. During that time she witnessed the killing of a young man fleeing for his life. She occasionally came out of hiding to seek food from an aunt and it was during one of these times that she was captured by a group of genocidaires. Miraculously she managed to escape these men.
