On 6-8 December 2019, Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Harutyun Marutyan participated in International Conference on the Crime of Genocide organized by the Pan-Pontian Federation of Greece.

The conference days were specially chosen to precede the UN International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and of the Prevention of this Crime, 9 December. 2019 marks the 100th centennial of the Genocide of the Greeks of Pontus, a Black Sea region in the Ottoman Empire.

The “International Conference on the Crime of Genocide” was structured in two thematic areas.

U.S. Senate Unanimously Recognizes Armenian Genocide



12.12.2019

The U.S. Senate struck a historic blow today against Turkey’s century-long obstruction of justice for the Armenian Genocide, unanimously adopting S.Res.150, an Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA)-backed measure that locks in ongoing U.S. recognition of this crime.

The resolution, identical to a measure (H.Res.296) adopted 405 to 11 in the U.S. House in October, officially rejects Turkey’s denials of its genocide against Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriacs, Arameans, Maronites, and other Christian nations. Passage of the resolution – spearheaded by Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) – marks the first time that the Senate has recognized the Armenian Genocide.
