Murambi Memorial Center

Murambi Memorial Center

This center was advertised as a place of refuge - and so Tutsis came to the center from the surrounding area. It is a fenced site, so people were basically trapped here, they thought for their protection, but not really. Then the water was shut off so people started starving and dying. Toward the end, gunmen came in and shot people. The bodies in the museum were unearthed on the site from a large pit. I am not sure what the logic was to exume them, and what the plan is to re-bury them.
