"Nyamata Church Memorial"


This is the interior of the former church at Nyamata. More than 10,000 people were killed in and around this church in a few days in April 1994. Their clothing has been piled on the pews as a deeply moving memorial.

The pockmarks on the podium and altar are from bullets and grenades thrown into the church where people had barricaded themselves for shelter.
