THE DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF AGMI PARTICIPATED IN AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE DEDICATED TO RAPHAEL LEMKIN AND THE GENOCIDE CONVENTION


13.12.2018


Edita Gzoyan, Deputy Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, participated at the international interdisciplinary conference Witness to the Age of Genocide: Raphael Lemkin and the Convention of 1948 organized by the Pilecki Institute on December 3-5, 2018 in Warsaw, Poland.

The conference was organized in the memory of Raphael Lemkin, Polish-Jewish jurist, author of the term genocide and initiator of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide adopted by the United Nations on 9 December 1948.

Prof. Donna Lee-Frieze, Prof. William A. Schabas, Prof. Marek Kornat were among the speakers of the conference.

Dr. Edita Gzoyan presented a paper titled “The Impact of Forcible Child Transfer during the Armenian genocide on the Conceptualization of Article 2 (e) of the Genocide Convention”, where the speaker studied how the forcible transfer of Armenian children during the Armenian Genocide affected Rapfael Lemkin’s idea to include the act into the realm of the notion of genocide.

On December 3, the Pilecki Institute opened also a temporary exhibition devoted to Raphael Lemkin.
