One page for each victim, one crate for each day of the genocide

800,000 are the pages in 2500 books displayed in 100 crates.

Acknowledge, Remember, Renew

800,000 are the pages in 2500 books displayed in 100 crates: one page for each victim, one crate for each day of the genocide. The books were hand-bound through the collaboration of the "800,000" team, six high schools, and three groups of volunteers.

Each victim is acknowledged through a hand print on one of the 800,000 pages. The project asks to acknowledge each life lost, remember the victims, and renew hope and support.
