Musanze Memorial

Title

Musanze Memorial

Description

In addition to the seven national memorial sites, every district has a local memorial. Nearly every district experienced intense casualties during the genocide. In some districts these memorials are mass graves. In others the memorial is just a monument. During commemoration these sites become gathering places for survivors and family to place wreaths and mourn their love ones. This above photo is of the Musanze local memorial in northwest Rwanda.
