Archive of Rwandan genocide

Last week the Guardian reported on the Genocide Archive of Rwanda. The archive will be located atthe Kigali Genocide Memorial and has gathered 1,500 recordings and over 20,000 documents and photographs relating to the 1994 massacres. Material has come from a range of sources including Rwandan media outlets and museums, court reports, foreign institutions and from survivors.
A digital archive is being developed, initially to be made available onsite and then online. The project has been dweveloped by the Aegis Trust and the National Commission for the Fight Against Genocide in Kigali, with assistance from the University of Tecas Libraries.
