Kwibuka 28

Kwibuka is a Kinyarwanda word that means “To Remember”. Today, April 7th, marks the International Day of Reflection on the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, a genocide in which over million innocent people were systematically murdered in just 100 days.

Genocide Prevention Month

April is Genocide Prevention Month. Throughout the month of April, we remember all those who were murdered in the Armenian genocide, in the Holocaust, in Cambodia, in Bosnia and elsewhere where innocent men, women, and children were murdered simply because of who they are.

As part of this commemorative period, Genocide Survivors Foundation will be organizing, co-organizing, and sharing a number of genocide commemoration and educational programs taking place over the next several weeks. We will be sharing details on our website, via email, and on social media.

A Commemoration Program on May 1st

We are also collaborating with the Museum of Jewish Heritage โ€“ A Living Memorial to the Holocaust to deliver another commemoration program which will take place virtually on Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 1:30 pm Eastern Time.

Following our first planning meeting this week, we are eager to share further details, speaker information, and the specific topics to be covered during the event. We will share more as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, we invite you to save the date.

Help Spread the Word

We need your help in getting the word out about these important education and awareness raising events. We invite to you spread the word by sharing these events โ€“ and details of other commemoration events โ€“ with those in your network. Together, we can work to reduce hate, promote understanding and appreciation for diversity, and thus prevent genocide and other mass atrocity crimes.
