Data Acquisition Project

In constructing the exhibitions at Gisozi and Murambi, documents, photographs, film, testimony and artefacts are being acquired and systematically documented. The documentation is an integral part of the exhibition development. Subsequently, it will be a department and resource on its own.

Going door to door on a daily basis since between January and April 2004, in the first month of this project the Aegis Trust's data acquisition team interviewed 2,573 people, identified 4,522 families in which members were victims, identified the names of 17,970 victims, the sites of 466 mass graves (each commonly estimated to contain 20-30 bodies), and the sites of 887 roadblocks (all within Kigali). They also collected 1,261 photos from the families of victims, which are being scanned by a technical member of the team and will be returned to the families in due course.
