  Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre > Events > 21th Commemoration of the Rwandan Genocide

Over 200 people attended an event hosted by  the JHGC and the Rwandan High Commission in SA,  to mark the 21 st  anniversary of the 1994 genocide that targeted Tutsis in Rwanda.
The dignified and moving programme included messages  from H.E. Vincent Karega, High Commissioner of the Republic of Rwanda to South Africa and Dr. Jean Paul Byiringiro.  Théogène Niwenshuti sang a hauntingly beautiful song.
 Programme director, Tali Nates invited survivors and other Rwandans to light candles in memory of their loved ones. The documentary Intore, demonstrated the power of song, dance and the resilience of a new generation in building a hopeful future after the genocide.
