For retired Lt.-Gen. Roméo Dallaire, Off is unlike any other journalist.

She first wrote about the former senator's efforts to stop the 1994 Rwandan genocide in her bookThe Lion, The Fox and The Eagle, and the deep connection they made continued long afterward.

Years later, Off interviewed Dallaire about his ongoing struggle with PTSD, and the two spoke frankly about the profound and painful effect of his time as head of the UN mission in Rwanda.
