The remains of about 250 000 individuals who died in the genocide lie buried in mass graves in the memorial grounds. The museum depicts a sad chapter in Rwanda’s history, indicating the role that Germany, Belgium, the Catholic Church and the French arms industry had played in dividing and arming a traditionally peaceful people, leading to different tribes slaughtering each other.
It is estimated that over one million Tutsis were killed by the Hutus between October 1990 and February 1994. The deceased who did not find a rest place here lie buried in the other Genocide Memorials around the country.
Visiting the museum is a sobering experience as it reminds one of the inhumanity of mankind by also illustrating genocides that have occurred elsewhere, including Namibia, Armenia, Nazi Germany, Cambodia and Bosnia.
