We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda (ISBN 0-312-24335-9) is a 1998 non-fiction book about the genocide of 800,000 Tutsis and others in Rwanda in 1994, written by The New Yorker writer Philip Gourevitch.

The book describes Gourevitch's travels in Rwanda after the conflict, in which he interviews survivors and gathers information. Gourevitch retells survivors' stories, and reflects on the meaning of the genocide.

The title comes from an April 15, 1994, letter written to Pastor Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church's operations in Rwanda, by several Adventist pastors who had taken refuge with other Tutsis in an Adventist hospital in the city of Mugonero. Gourevitch accused Ntakirutimana of aiding the killings that happened in the complex the next day. After the book's publication, Ntakirutimana was convicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

This book won numerous awards, including the 1998 National Book Critics Circle award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and the George K. Polk Award for Foreign Reporting.
