Pedagogy of Remembrance and Reconciliation

A keynote about the Rwandan Pedagogy of Remembrance and Reconciliation was combined with a visit of the Genocide Memorial Center in Kigali and pointed out initial approaches regarding this topic.

Theory A:       Education of Remembrance

Education of remembrance introduces the history and the current situation to the young generation and imparts the responsibility a society has for (past) crimes and sufferings. The recognition of this responsibility is an important aspect of education in a democratic citizenship.

The Rwandan history and its approaches to an education of remembrance became more concrete and experienceable for the participants of the conference during the visit of the Kigali Memorial Center at Gisozi.
