This site of the April 1994 massacre has been declared a genocide memorial. It remains a solemn tribute to those who were slain, the bones and belongings of the dead still lying among the aisles and the altar.
I did not know what to expect when arriving. I had previously just visited a few other memorial churches. At the time of visiting many of the remains were still being organized. The people we met at the church gave us a ton of information...More

It is a very sombre place ..... go if you are...More
