YEREVAN–"About 20,000 people from 80 countries visit the Genocide museum annually. In order to make a more definitive presentation of the events that happened at the beginning of the century as well as to counter denial–a genocide almanac must be published. The almanac will be a chronology which cannot be disputed," says historian Lavrenti Barseghyan–the director of the Armenian Genocide Museum and Institute.
Barseghyan said that he has authored a book which will be published soon entitled "The Recognition and Chronology of the Armenian Genocide in 1915-2000." The book will chronicle the posturing of other nations vis–vis the Armenian Genocide.
Barseghyan added that according to data gathered by the museum –over the last several years an estimated 4600 Armenia’s had been living in Armenia–who were born up to and including 1914–however–in the last two years that number has dropped to 1200.
The museum currently features a special file folder–which includes biographical data of more than 18,000 Armenia’s (both victims and survivors) as well as eyewitness accounts of the Genocide.
