  • The history of a country torn to pieces by genocide..the Kigali Genocide Memorial brings Rwanda's history to perspective. One of the most touching places visited. The reception is good from the start, the place has good public amenities for its visitors, the stations explaining the history are well labelled and translators are present to help visitors as they go through the memorial. It's a must visit for a sobering experience on the history of the people of Rwanda.
  • Powerful, worthwhile, life-changing. Take your time to visit: learn and pay your respects, then commit to becoming a peacemaker in your circles of influence and for the good of the world. Thank you, KGM for teaching the global community! You bring hope for the future.
