A Flower in the River


Montréal’s Rwandan community meets in April each year to commemorate the hundreds of thousands of men, women and children who were murdered during the 1994 genocide. The audio tour follows the route of the commemorative walk from Berri-UQAM Metro (corner of Berri and St-Catherines) to the Sailors’ Memorial Tower on the St. Lawrence River in the Vieux Port. As you walk alongside busy Montréal streets, you will be guided by the voices of Rwandan Montréalers who will share their stories with you.

As the stories shared are of a sensitive nature, mp3s are not available for download for the use with private MP3 Players. Contact us to have access to the file.

This commemorative audio walk was designed by Steven High, Lisa Ndejuru, and Phil Lichti as part of the Montreal Life Stories project.
