The people of Rwanda, painfully experienced the horrors of genocide and today stood with the world to remember and honour the victims of the Holocaust.
The moral in this is to send a strong message on the importance of fighting genocide ideology.
Honore Gatera, Director at the Kigali Genocide Memorial said “… this reminds us again the link between the Holocaust and the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda and of our shared responsibility to educate generations who will firmly stand up against hatred and prejudice to foster humanity for peace”“
“Never Again is a shared responsibility between the Rwandan people and the world. The words mean that we have to memorialize the tragic events in order to teach the world about the consequences of genocides, division, and racism”.
“‘Together let’s observe a moment of silence for all the victims of the Holocaust and keep the memory of the Holocaust alive for the world to confront hatred and champion humanity”
The Kigali Genocide Memorial is the final resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. The memorial plays a vital role in remembrance, learning and rebuilding lives: It honours the memory of more than one million Rwandans killed in 1994. Through its education and peace-building programmes, it hope to inspire the next generation of Rwandans and internationals to champion humanity.
