Albert Gaske, coordinator of Kwibuka Rwanda’s tour to the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, Michigan, USA, said about the exhibition’s impact:
'One participant, Sister Marie Josepha, a survivor herself from Gikongoro now living here in Michigan, was touched by the exhibition in a particular way. She pulled me aside after gazing at the panel that shows a stand-alone piece of stone at Cyanika Memorial site. "I was here," she said, pointing at the panel as she wiped tears from her eyes. Sister Marie Josepha was deeply moved. She said she never thought her story and the story of those she lost could travel this far, and finally reach her right here in West Michigan, 7,500 miles away from the little town of Cyanika. The story of Sister Marie Josepha is not the only one. Valentine Iribagiza, who came out of corpses in Nyarubuye, was really touched when she saw a panel that describes that memorial site. I could see survivors's enthusiam as they were walking around the panels sharing their memories with their American friends. On behalf of my fellow survivors, thank you so much for sharing Kwibuka Rwanda panels with the survivors and our new community in West Michigan.'
