The Kigali Genocide Memorial Center, Kigali City, Rwanda

 

 The Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre in Kigali was created by a joint partnership of the Kigali City Council and the UK-based Aegis Trust. It contains a permanent and extremely moving exhibition of the Rwandan genocide and an exhibition of other genocides around the world. The Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre is a worthwhile important place to visit while in Rwanda and Kigali City.

The Kigali Memorial Centre was opened on the 10th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide, in April 2004. The Centre is built on a site where over 250,000 people are buried and there is a truly touching museum. These graves are a clear reminder of the cost of ignorance and the Rwandan Genocide. The Centre is a permanent memorial to those who fell victim to the genocide and serves as a place for people to grieve those they lost.

The Centre includes three permanent exhibitions, the largest of which documents the genocide in 1994. There is also a children's memorial, and an exhibition on the history of genocidal violence around the world. The Education Centre, Memorial Gardens and National Documentation Centre of the Genocide all contribute to a meaningful tribute to those who perished, and form a powerful educational tool for the next generation.

Since its opening, the Centre has welcomed over 100,000 visitors, including local Rwandans, young people and young leaders from around the Great Lakes region, politicians from the Great Lakes region and beyond — from countries throughout Africa and from the wider international community.
