Visit the memorial of a massacre
After 20 years, dark memories of the Rwanda Genocide are still scarring the nation. Walk through the church of Nyamata, where one of the worst massacres took place, in this interactive story Martin Edström directed for The Guardian.
As Rwanda marks its Liberation Day, the anniversary of the Rwandan Patriotic Front’s defeat of government forces which effectively ended the 1994 genocide, photojournalist Martin Edström presents a panoramic tour of Nyamata church.
A scene from the Rwanda genocide
Thousands were killed here in a deliberate attack 20 years ago as they sought sanctuary from the horrible violence. Now the place serves as a memorial to the genocide.
