Tourist Attraction in Kigali: Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre
The Kigali Genocide Memorial in Kigali, Rwanda, recalls the Rwandan genocide in 1994. The remains of more than 250,000 people are buried there. There is a reception center for students and people wishing to understand the events leading up to the events of 1994. The Center is a permanent memorial for those who have been victims of the genocide and serves as a burial place for grieving people, their families and friends. The Center is run and operated by Aegis of Trust and the City Council of Kigali. In 2000, the City Council of Kigali began to build the facade of a building, which eventually became the Memorial Center. Aegis was invited to turn the vows for building a center into reality. Aegis Trust then began collecting data from around the world to create the three display charts. The text is printed in three languages. Designed in the United Kingdom, it was delivered to Rwanda for installation in April 2004.
