Acknowledge, Remember, Renew

  • By William Snyder III

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.
