Mass graves honor victims at Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre


April marks 20 years since years of discrimination and hatred escalated into genocide. More than half a million people were killed in 100 days, many of the victims are buried in mass graves at the site of the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre (pictured above) where they are remembered in a permanent museum. Human Rights Watch has just issued a new report on how Rwanda and Rwandans are progressing, with a special focus on justice after genocide. You'll find a summary here and you can read the full 20 page report here. This April you'll also be able to watch the new 20th anniversary commemorative edition of our documentary film Coexist. Broadcast information is available on our website here.
