About the Book
In April 2010, during the national genocide commemoration week in Rwanda, Peacemaker Institute and Memos: Learning From History conducted the first Peacemaker Bearing Witness Rwanda Retreat with nine international participants and 12 Rwandan participants. The Rwandan participants were leaders and activists from NGO's and government agencies working for healing, reconciliation and genocide prevention in the aftermath of the 1994 genocide in which nearly 1,000,000 people lost their lives. This book tells the story of the retreat.
