YEREVAN — The first meeting of the commission which coordinates organization of the events devoted to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide was held which was conducted by the chairman of the commission Serzh Sarkisian.
President Sarkisian greeted the participants of the sitting, thanked them for accepting the invitation to joint the commission.
“The issue of the Armenian Genocide is still open ninety-six years after it was perpetrated,” President Sargsyan said in his speech. “It’s open because it’s hard to understand the policy of annihilation a state planned and implemented against its own citizens. It’s open, since the consequences of the crime against the Armenian people have not yet been eliminated. It’s open because there are deniers of the Armenian Genocide, who spare no effort to distort this black page of the Armenian history. It’s open, since Armenian Genocide deniers view this tragedy as a phenomenon that creates inconveniences for them in international politics and do not perceive the necessity to reimburse for it through penitence.”
During the meeting Secretary of the commission, Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Hayk Demoyan briefed on the organization of the events dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, formation of an advisory group of the state commission. Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian presented the work done abroad ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

  1. “Where is your Christian God?” Alma Sakaian, a fifteen year old Protestant Christian Armenian, recalled hearing this question mockingly asked by perpetrators of heinous crimes upon her caravan. Alma was among the one hundred and fifty survivors of a sixty-five day forced march that witnessed over 17,850 casualties. I have documented two generations of Alma’s immediate and extended family life, as well as recreating her caravan ordeal. The research includes hundred rare pictures, newspaper and magazine articles dating 1873 – 1924. In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide I am providing links to the research for those interested in this important historical era and personal story.
