The Legacy of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide: an evening of testimony and reflection.

A special evening to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.


The Wiener Library is hosting a special evening to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. The event also marks the donation of a collection of audio testimonies from Rwandan refugees living in the UK today, which were collected by the charity rYico as part of a year long project. The testimonies are the very first addition to the collection from the Rwandan Genocide.

We are delighted to welcome the following speakers at the event:

Dan Godshaw, project director at rYico, will speak about the project ‘Keeping Memories’ and the work that rYico does in Rwanda today.

Patrice Shema (Chairperson of London Rwandese Community Association) and Bosco Ngabonzima (Chairperson of West Midlands Rwandan Community Association), both survivors of the Rwandan genocide will speak about their experiences and their involvement with rYico’s project.

Dr Phil Clark from SOAS will speak about post-conflict resolution in Rwanda today, drawing on research from his most recent book ‘The Gacaca Courts, Post-Genocide Justice and Reconciliation in Rwanda: Justice without Lawyers’ (Cambridge University Press).
