7 April: International Day of Reflection

Date: 08 April 2019 Tags: Days & Dates
  • Every year 7th April is observed as The International Day of Reflection on 1994 Rwandan genocide in memory of victims of genocide in Rwanda.
  • 1994 genocide in which around 800,000 Tutsis community (an African ethnic group) were slaughtered in Rwanda in a 100 day campaign, is a hallmark example of violence that was ignored by international community.
  • The United Nations later declared day in remembrance of Tutsi people who were killed or injured in atrocities.
  • The Day of Reflection offers opportunity to consider factors that led to such mass atrocity and to renew collective pledge of “never again”.
