When you escape death, that's when you appreciate life. [...] Today, even when something saddens me, I look for a reason to be happy.I want to work hard and get somewhere in life. I know no one will have pity on me just because I'm an orphan.
Lessons from Rwanda
The "Lessons from Rwanda" exhibit is a production of Aegis Trust for genocide prevention (UK Registered Charity 1082856), in partnership with the United Nations.
The exhibit presents an account of the events taking place before, during and after the genocide. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the lessons to be learnt from those events, the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and other judicial mechanisms in ending impunity and the lasting impact of genocide on survivors.
The exhibit has been shown at schools and prisons throughout Rwanda, and in 2013 was hosted by a number of public high schools in New York City.
Available in English, French, Spanish and Kinyarwanda. Please contact us to enquire about hosting the exhibit.
