the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.
And, that is just what we saw yesterday when we went to the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre. Part memorial part museum the center sits on a site where 250,000 people are burried. The mass graves there are a constant reminder of the cost of human ignorance. Walking through the exhibit you can see human skulls that have been crushed in and hear first hand acounts of the events that transpired as well a view other mass killings that have happened all over the world. The main purpose of the center is to educate people on what really happened ensuring that it never happens again.
