Haunting bullet holes on the walls of the main building of Belgian Peacekeepers Memorial bear witness to the beginning of the Rwandan genocide. Inside the building, see the exhibit about the genocide and the story behind the slaughter of the soldiers. The backyard contains a memorial site with ten black stone columns commemorating Belgian UN peacekeepers killed on site, while carvings on the columns represent their age. Although small in size, the memorial site creates a powerful and moving message about war atrocities.

  • A piece of history. I've never experienced war in my life, but to see what has happened in Rwanda 🇷🇼 Never again! Peace and dialogue and respect for one another is always better . Nobody gets better with wars, it only produces set backs These officers that died in this were very young officers who were on peace keeping duties. These pillars represents each of the fallen soldiers
  • Well conserved place full of history. No entrance fee, just donation if you're able to
