Nyarubuye Genocide Memorial

Nyarubuye Memorial Site

The site is found 35 kilometers away from the towns of Kibungo and Kirehe districts. This is a convent and school where 20,000 people were killed. These people were trying to flee over to the Tanzanian border. In 2003, the school became practical again; the convent, however, remains empty, apart from the bones of the victims, and will be turned into a memorial and education centre.
