Ntarama: I.D. Card

Title

Ntarama: I.D. Card

Description

I.D. cards were first issued during the colonial period. The post-independence regimes led by Gregoire Kayibanda and Juvenal Habyarimana continued this practice. Those possessing a Tutsi I.D. met both personal and institutional discrimination. During the genocide Tutsi I.D. cards directed perpetrators on who to kill. Countless Tutsi died at roadblocks after being identified. Additionally, many Hutu who did not have an I.D. card to prove their identity met the same fate. At Ntarama several I.D. cards are displayed.
