Rwanda: Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day in Rwanda. Rwandan Survivors remembers and writes “t is a time to look to the future. We should not forget the atrocities that have occurred in the past but we should look at where we are now and realise that in many countries these horrors still occur. We only need to look to Darfur to realise that people soon forget.”
