YEREVAN — As part of the events dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the Armenian Genocide Museum Institute (AGMI) presented four new works, two of them in English. Following the presentation AGMI Director Hayk Demoyan awarded medals and diplomas to individuals and groups that contributed to the Museum within the framework of the centennial events.

“The Armenian Genocide in Contemporary American Encyclopedias” by Dr. Arman Kirakossian is a summary of interpretations on the topic of the Armenian Genocide in American encyclopedias.

The author said the work is especially important for scholars and can well be a good propaganda tool.

Hayk Demoyan informed that another two volumes titled “Armenian Genocide Encyclopedia” will be published by the end of the year.

The AGMI also presented Rubina Peroomian’s “The Armenian Genocide in Literature: The Second Generation Responds” and “The number of Western Armenians in 1878-1914” by Robert Tatosyan.

The fourth book unveiled was the catalogue of the temporary exhibition on “The Armenian Genocide: The Scandinavian Response,” published under a presidential grant.
