Posted in News

In the afternoon of Monday 23 May, 10 representatives of the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in Rwanda visited the Kigali genocide memorial to learn more about the history of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

The group began their visit at the memorial by laying wreaths on the mass graves, which are the final resting place for over 250,000 victims of the Genocide in Rwanda, followed by a tour of the memorial’s exhibition to learn more about the causes and consequences of the Genocide and the dangers of genocide ideology.

“Normally history speaks for itself, the whole world should learn from this and try their best to make sure that genocide will never happen any whenever in the world. People who denies deceive themselves as the story is clear and shows more details of Rwandan Genocide”. Nick Tedesco, representative of UNICEF Rwanda.
