The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute is a nonprofit organization based in Yerevan, Republic of Armenia. The mission of the Museum is both to promote the collection of visual textual materials related to the daily life of Western Armenians in the Ottoman Empire before and during the Genocide, and to develop more effective cooperation and collaboration among organizations worldwide involved in the research of genocide, particularly the Armenian Genocide.
Since 2006 Dr. Hayk Demoyan has been the Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute in Yerevan. He lectures on the Museum’s major recent publications on the Armenian Genocide, including survivor memoirs, eyewitness accounts, reprinted editions of rare primary sources and collections of newly-discovered documents and works on the Cilicia massacres of 1909. “We stand in solidarity for all genocide victims and assert that in order to prevent further genocides in the world, our responsibility in action is crucial for furthering understanding as well as condemnation of what happened to the Armenian people in the beginning of the 20th century.” — Dr. Demoyan This lecture is sponsored by the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute in Yerevan, the Ararat-Eskijian Museum, the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research, and Glendale Public Library.
