Murambi Genocide Memorial Centre

The Murambi Genocide Memorial Centre is located in the Nyamagabe District with in Southern Province of the country. Found in an old technical school, the memorial site is only 30 minutes drive from the National Museum of Rwanda in Butare. Here, a school where 27,000 people were slain. A severe, shocking memorial, hundreds of corpses are momentarily preserved and presently demonstrated in the school.
The memorial has been developed as an enduring exposition to the genocide. It documents from pre-colonial times to the more modern history of the 1994 genocide. The drawing focuses on developing a commemorative plaque from which the school children and local community can gain. With the construction of the centre at Murambi in its final stages of completion, it is at present intended that its official opening will take place later this year.
