WATERTOWN, MA — On Sunday April 21, the Armenian Museum of America will present a Joint Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, the Cambodian Genocide, and the ongoing Genocide in Darfur.

The Armenian Genocide provided a blueprint for many other Genocides of the 20th century; only the victims are different. Armenian-Americans understandably focus each April on commemorating the Armenian Genocide. Recognizing that our Genocide is a forerunner for countless other Genocides, we share the pain from all Genocides, and each year we commemorate with other victim groups.

This year’s joint commemoration will feature talks by Mr. Kowith Kret, a survivor of the Cambodian Genocide by the Khmer Rouge, Mr. Eric Cohen, president of the Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur speaking on the ongoing crisis in the region, and Prof. Armen Marsoobian of Southern Connecticut State University on the aftermath of the Armenian Genocide.

An exhibition on the Cambodian Genocide, “More Than A Number”, will be on display in the Terjenian-Thomas Gallery on the third floor, and an exhibit on the Genocide in Darfur will be mounted in the Contemporary Art Gallery on the same floor. The museum’s permanent Armenian Genocide exhibition is on display on the 2nd floor.
