An exhibition titled “Genocide after Genocide” opened today at the Union of Architects of Armenia. Thirty-two posters in Armenian and English present the monuments of Western Armenia destroyed by Turkish authorities.
The exhibition was previously displayed in Stepanakert, Ijevan and Vanadzor. This fall it will be taken to Brussels and will be on display at the European Parliament. It will later move to other European cities, including Lyon and Amsterdam.
Samvel Karapetyan, President of the Research on Armenian Architecture Fund, said at the opening ceremony that the initiative aims to show what has been happening in our historic homeland ever since 1915. According to him, the current generations must be informed about our cultural legacy. “If the monuments are endangered, we have a duty to keep the public informed about the cultural genocide,” he said.
