On Saturday, 11th May 2019, a delegation of staff and students representatives from INES-RUHENGERI visited Gisozi Genocide Memorial Site and Museum/Inteko. The two memorial sites are located in Kigali.
Visiting memorials sites is important for INES community; it helps to learn our history based on the real facts and get explanations of what happened in different parts of the country.
During the 100 days to commemorate the Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi in 1994, people come to visit the memorial sites; it is in the regard that INES delegation took time to visit the two memorial sites within the following purposes:
- To learn lessons from the past;
- To ensure that history is not forgotten
- Focus part of our efforts at the museum on raising awareness, raising consciousness that genocide has caused tremendous consequences , and that we have a long way to go to realize our collective vision of ‘never again”.
“Remembering those murdered for their beliefs is not only about honoring them, their families and making sure the victims are never forgotten but also to fight those who deny such atrocities ever happened”, said Dr. NIYONZIMA N. François, Deputy Vice Chancellor Academics at INES-Ruhengeri.
