YEREVAN (Arka.am)– The Genocide Museum-Institute in Yerevan hosted today the presentation of four books on the 1915 Armenian Genocide, published in the French language with the financial support from ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK.
The original presentation and sale of these books was first held at the Paris Municipality at the initiative of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute in cooperation with the municipalities of Yerevan and Paris.
One of these books authored by the director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Hayk Demoian is called “Coverage of the Armenian Genocide on the Front Pages of the World Press;” others are the memoirs of Sargis Torosian called “From Dardanelles to Palestine,” a special project called “100 Photo Stories about the Armenian Genocide,” and “Ravished Armenia ” by Aurora Mardiganian.
“I want to note with pleasure that these books were a great success in Paris. Three days ago, all the copies of these books put for sale were sold out completely,’ Hayk Demoian told reporters. He said these are the first translation of these books into French. Demoian’s book had been presented also in March at the prestigious Paris International Book Fair.
In turn, ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK CEO Hakob Andreasian noted that the bank’s joining the project was quite a responsible step.
“We wanted to make a modest contribution to the events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. That project was very responsible and that was why we had our French partners involved in it who made a significant contribution to its implementation,” said Andreasian.
