A place of remembrance & learning

The Kigali Genocide Memorial is the final resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi

Kwibuka 29

We remember the victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi and we teach about peace.

The Kigali Genocide Memorial is like my home. It is where i go to be with my relatives. You feel happy being close to your loved ones.But then it becomes a place of grief because they are gone. I go home after visiting the memorial and leave them there.

The emotion created by the visit of this genocide memorial will stay printed in my heart forever. I’ll encourage people I know to visit the memorial so they can learn how far hatred can go hoping they commit to prevent such a crime wherever and whenever they are. That’s my commitment too.
