Rwandans in Poland have paid tribute to the victims of the 1994 genocide against Tutsi in the ongoing events for the 24th commemoration.
Dozens of Rwandans and friends gathered at the Centre for Jewish Culture and Education in the White Stork Synagogue.
The synagogue also presents the exhibition “Genocide Against Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994.”
The commemoration event was also graced by Rwandan envoy in Germany Igor Cesar, Founder and President of the Rwandan Community in Poland and Karibu Foundation, Patrick Dusabe, and Director of the Centre for Jewish Culture and Education in Wrocław Bente Kahan.
Ambassador Igor told noted that the anniversary is also an opportunity to “pay homage to people who have shown heroism, protecting innocent people and sacrificing their lives to save others”.
He also said that Rwandans had not resigned to grief but they have made an effort to unite all over the world, and in the country to rebuild a stronger and peaceful state.
“The international community should bring to justice those responsible for crimes in our country and are freely moving in western countries,” said Cesar.
This year’s theme of the anniversary is “unite, remember and renew”.
