International Day of Reflection on the 1994 Genocide : 07 April
The International Day of Reflection on the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda is commemorated by UNESCO on April 07, every year.
The year 2022 marks the 28th anniversary of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
The day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003.
The day commemorates the beginning of the genocide perpetrated against members of the Tutsi minority by the Hutu extremist-led government. Within just over 100 days, more than 1 million Tutsi were systematically murdered. Moderate Hutu and others who opposed the massacres were also killed during this period.
