Until April 30, 2021

Considering the history and memory of the Tutsi genocide implies a confrontation with the human and material reality of the massacres. Through a scenographic arrangement aimed at approaching the event through a narration centered on objects, sound, video or written archives, the exhibition allows us to recreate the reality of a past that is still alive in Rwanda, twenty-five years later.

The exhibition benefited from loans of original objects from the Kigali-Aegis Trust Memorial, Rwanda, and testimonies recorded by the Voices of Rwanda association and Valérie Nivelon, RFI.
