Condolences and solidarity following the Pittsburgh synagogue attack.

The Humura Association wishes to express its sympathies to the Jewish communities of the United States, Canada and the rest of the world for the anti-Semitic massacre that took 11 lives in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018.
We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and to the Jewish community, which still faces hatred and violence more than 70 years after the Holocaust.
As survivors of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda, the members of Humura Association condemn this attack with the utmost energy and demand justice for this crime.
We urge that strict measures be taken here and elsewhere to stem the rise of anti-semitism and other hate crimes.
We must all continue to fight for the day when we can truly say ‘never again’; when no human being is killed because of what they are.
We stand in solidarity and in mourning with our Jewish brothers and sisters, and we reiterate our firm determination to work for memory, justice and life.
Ghislain Shema Ndayisaba.
President of Humura.
