Artist Natacha Nisic attended the 2018 appeal trial in France of two people responsible for the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. In her notebooks, reproduced here, she drew and took notes, capturing the exchanges, postures, tensions and emotions. The historian Hélène Dumas gives the keys to understanding the stakes of this trial in a stand-alone text.
