Bisesero Memorial

Title

Bisesero Memorial

Description

It took me a three hours via a jeep from Kibuye to reach the Bisesero memorial. The Bisesero memorial honors the Tutsi resistance in western Rwanda against Hutu militias during the genocide. Situated on a hill, the memorial includes a winding path that narrows as the visitor ascends. This is meant to illustrate how the numbers of resistors slowly died out as the genocide progressed.
