Rwanda continues to bury genocide victims

Rwanda continues to bury genocide victims
BY THOMAS RIPPE
VOA NEWS

KIGALI, RWANDA — Fifteen years after the genocide in Rwanda, relatives of some victims are still looking for the remains of loved ones. On Friday a few of them were finally able to bury their family members.

For many families the wounds are still fresh, and the healing process incomplete. Many Rwandans have never found the remains of family who were killed at that time. "I think survivors who have never discovered the bodies of their relatives are always living with that kind of sadness internally, because they have never discovered their relatives. So it's a chance for these ones to discover them and bury them in a dignified area," said Honore Gatera, who works at the Kigali Memorial Center, where more than 250,000 genocide victims are buried. He himself lost more than 20 family members to the genocide, and he understands the need of people to bury their families with dignity.
