Ntarama’s former Catholic church is now a memorial site. 5,000 people were massacred there on 15 April 1994 during the Rwandan genocide.
This memorial centre is one of six major centres in Rwanda that commemorate the Rwandan genocide. The others are the Murambi Memorial Centre, the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre and others at Nyamata, Bisesero and Nyarubuye. &
The Nyamata Genocide Memorial is based around a former church 30 km south of Kigali in Rwanda, which commemorates the Rwandan genocide in 1994. The remains of 50,000 people are buried here.
