“The horrors suffered by the Armenians as seen through Dutch eyes”
The opening of a new temporary exhibition in the AGMI


29.04.2022


A temporary exhibition titled "The horrors suffered by the Armenians as seen through Dutch eyes" was opened in the AGMI’s small exhibition hall today, April 29, 2022. This unique exhibition addresses the Dutch response to the Armenian massacres and Genocide for the first time.

The exhibition was opened with a welcoming speech made by the director of the “Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute” Foundation Harutyun Marutyan, after which Dr. Dirk Roodzant, the exhibition’s creator, greeted those present.

The opening ceremony was also attended by the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Republic of Armenia Mr. Nicholas Jacob Schermers, the US Deputy Ambassador to the Republic of Armenia Mr. Chip Leitinen and the Director of the Archives and Museums of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Father Asoghik Karapetyan.

The bilingual (Armenian and English) temporary exhibition, consisting of four titled sections, features original documents, illustrations and unique examples of items concerning the Armenian Genocide, published in the Dutch press, which are being exhibited for the first time. Most of the materials presented are from the Dutch researcher and creator of the exhibition Dr. Dirk Rhoodzant’s personal collection.

The exhibition was organized through the cooperation of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Foundation, the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Dr. Dirk Roodzant.

After the exhibition’s opening, Mr. Roodzant delivered a lecture titled “The Horrors suffered by the Armenians as seen through Dutch eyes” in the AGMI conference hall.

Following the lecture, AGMI Director Harutyun Marutyan awarded Dirk Rodzant with the James Bryce Medal for presenting the Armenian Genocide on international platforms.

The exhibition will run until September 2022.
