A great number of young people today did not witness the evil that ensued in this country 28 years ago, and therefore, know nothing, or very little, about the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi that claimed the lives of over one million people. As part of the various events that take place to commemorate the country’s darkest period, the objective is to make the youth— the country’s future—a vital component in ensuring that the country never suffers the same fate ever again. Therefore, it is imperative to have discussions, with the youth, concerning this because they too have been affected by its disastrous consequences in one way or another. Many young people don’t know what to do, how to react or what to say during the commemoration period. With the 28th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi upon us, what should young people know about commemoration and how best can they participate? Use the right Genocide-related terminologies: Misuse of a term could imply something unintended. It could trigger or imply denial, minimisation, or negation of the Genocide. One ought to be careful about the utilisation of Genocide-related terms. Watch your sources: Since many weren’t here at the time the Genocide took place, it is natural that they want to learn more about it. There are various sources to get information but unfortunately, not all of them are reliable or in line with what really happened. Even Genocide deniers, perpetrators, or any other person can use the same means (books, videos, etc.) to spread propaganda and genocide ideology. So it is advisable to look for reliable sources. Don’t feel detached: Not experiencing the Genocide first-hand may make someone feel ‘disconnected’, however, the commemoration period, can help one find that connection as millions of Rwandans come together to memorialise as one, with events such as Walk to Remember, and a night vigil, to name a few. This year, however, will be the third time the commemoration activities are taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic and key activities were suspended to limit the spread of the virus. The national mourning will last until April 13 while commemoration activities will go on until July 3, ahead of the celebrations for Liberation Day which take place on July 4. We need to honour and value the commemoration, and take to heart the vision of a unified Rwanda, then we can go ahead and say “Never Again” wholeheartedly. Talk to elders: Talking to elders is one way to know and understand our history better, especially survivors, many lost their families—and the will to live— during the Genocide. During this period, they need all the support they can get. Talk to them, listen to them, and show them that even through young people, Rwanda remembers. A personal visit, telephone call, text message, sympathy card, or even flowers, may make them feel less alone, and probably save them from the verge of depression. Visit memorial sites and attend sessions: One way to learn about the Genocide is to attend memorial sessions. This may help one understand the past, and what needs to be done to keep it afloat going forward. Youngsters should make it a priority to participate in public discussions, and challenge themselves and others on the truth about the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi. With this, they will have a strong culture of documenting the Genocide and its devastating effects.
