Hatzfeld's multivolume collection of survivor and perpetrator testimonies, Life Laid Bare (New York, 2006), Machete Season: The Killers in Rwanda Speak; A Report (New York, 2003), and The Strategy of Antelopes: Living in Rwanda after the Genocide (London, 2009); and A. Aghion's documentary film of the gacaca courts, My Neighbor, My Killer (New York, 2009).
