Rwanda - Building a Memorial

Come and hear the issues raised by building a memorial which hopes to put human remains on display

The Rwandan Genocide in 1994 resulted in the deaths of an estimated 800,000 individuals in 100 days. A number of memorials and educational centres have been built in Rwanda which display the bodies of genocide victims. This raises a variety of ethical and technical issues, which Museum scientists are trying to solve. Join us as we discuss the preservation of human remains and debate some of the arguments for and against a memorial of this kind.
