Main Library, 2nd Floor, West Wing

Remembering the Rwanda Genocide Against the Tutsi 25 Years Later is a series of activities commemorating the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

The series seeks to increase awareness and understanding of the root causes and the effects of the genocide against the Tutsi--tracing the forces that led to the genocide, remembering those who died, experientially viewing genocide sites via a 360° immersive visualization exhibit, hearing from survivors, and looking toward a future of renewal and hope.

These activities are part of a larger ongoing initiative in partnership with the University of Rwanda Center for Conflict Management, the Rwandan National Commission for the Fight Against Genocide, the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center, and IBUKA, a genocide survivors' group.

Exhibit curated by Erik Ponder, African Studies Librarian, with support from project partners: Laura Apol, Associate Professor, Teacher Education; Jean Kayitsinga, Julian Samora Research Institute, University Outreach and Engagement; Jean Pierre Nshimyanmana, Center for Water Sciences, Dept. of Fisheries & Wildlife.
