Rwandan Genocide Memorials
One of the most difficult and powerful parts of my trip was visits to a number of genocide memorials in the area of Kilagi.
The rest of this post is after the page break. There are some graphic images and descriptions. If you don't care to read them, this serves as your warning.
Many of the memorials are in old churches, because Tutsi refugees would gather in the sanctuaries, hoping that they would be safe in the house of God. But churches ended up being the places of some of the worst sites of mass killing during the genocide. The images from above and below are from two churches outside of Kigali.
