Memoriam

We visited the Gisozi Genocide Memorial where more than 250,000 people are buried in mass graves.

A mass grave lies beneath this concrete slab.

We were hesitant to go since one of the grenades last night was detonated right outside. But it seemed important to visit in defiance of these most recent acts of terrorism. That people would attempt to restart the chaos and horror of Rwanda’s past in this very place, demonstrates how humanity’s fleeting memory is our great weakness.
