Armenian Refugee Women around the Corpse of a Donkey
From the special project “100 photographic stories about the Armenian Genocide”


25.03.2015

This photo was made in 1916 in Horan region of Syria. This is a unique scene of tortured and hungry Armenian refugee women grouped around the corpse of a donkey. The author of a photo is Hasan Amjan who was appointed by Djemal Pasha as an inspector of the Armenian deportees. He was personally in charge of resettling the Armenian deportees in Syria and Lebanon.

The photo proves a critical situation of the Armenian deportees. To satisfy their hunger and thirst people were forced to perform unimaginable: even some examples of hannibalizm were reported. When Hasan Amjan approached them with a photo camera to depict that scene, no one paid attention, casted a glance or looked at his direction.


The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute and Ararat-Eskijian Museum Published the Memoirs of the Ottoman Armenian Sportsman


24.03.2015

The memoirs titled “Love, love, love” are a very unique source of the pre-genocide history of the Armenian life in the Ottoman Empire. It’s also an absolute historical source of the history of sports and Olympic Games, World War I, Armenian Genocide, as well as the refugees and migration.

For the first time in the Ottoman history two Armenian sportsmen Vahram Papazian and Mkrtich Mkrian represented the Ottoman Turkey in the fifth Olympic Games in Stockholm in 1912.

In the chapter “On the way to Stockholm” Papazian wrote: “In 1912, the International Olympic Games were to be held in Stockholm, and Turkey was invited to participate. However, the Turks had no athletes, while the Armenians did. So the Armenians decided to send their athletes to represent the huge Ottoman Empire and succeeded. Ottoman Turkey participated twice in a similar international competition as an empire thanks to two Armenian sportsmen, as you will see later on. The two Armenian athletes brought honor to their country… …When I arrived in Stockholm in the morning, I noticed that the streets and important buildings were adorned with flags of all the countries participating in the Olympic Games, but there was not a single Turkish flag among them. I was very concerned about this. After all, I was the official representative of the Ottoman Empire, and this slight against my country was an insult to me.

In 1915, Clement Kyurkchyan Yozgat was deported to Der Zor.

Genocide Denial as a Form of Racism: Approaches in International Law


14.01.2015

Genocide is not a single act but a continuing process. The International Association of Genocide Scholars identified 8 stages of Genocide: denial is the eighth stage of the Genocidal policy.

A great number of scholars argue that the deliberate denial of a known genocide is a harmful act that should be put on the same footing as indirect and direct contributions to the actual genocide. National and international court decisions also clearly demonstrate that genocide denial and minimization or distortion of its facts is a form of racism. A number of international legal instruments also explicitly or implicitly prohibit Genocide denial.

Thus, the Armenian Genocide, as a clear implication of racism, is punishable under Public International Law.

Hayk Demoyan: "We should get rid of the complex. Armenian Genocide centennial not the end."


09.01.2015

Mr. Demoyan, large-scale events are expected to mark the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. Many people inquire about what is going to follow April 24.

Of course, we can observe such sentiments, but we have repeatedly noted that this year should not be viewed as the limit. I can tell you about events we are planning for 2016. Turks are actually expecting that as well. In his latest statement Etyen Mahçupyan (Senior Advisor to the Turkish Prime Minister) said that the opening of the Armenian-Turkish border and other issues will be discussed after situation has calmed down in 2015. That is, they are waiting a wave to come and go and they will take steps. We should get rid of the complex that something will take place in 2015. Our mood should not be that the centennial is the end. One more problem is that the Armenian Genocide is a common topic, but talks have to be followed by deeds, serious work needs to be done, which is expected to produce results. And we are now marking the centennial of the Armenian Genocide with only one museum, whereas we should have had at least five or six museums in big centers of the world. Such museums are not cultural centers. Rather, they are instruments for us to provide on-site educational information. But we are speaking of one-day marches, demonstrations and so on. As far as I know around US $1m is needed to organize a march, convention or lecture in New York. We need to specify what we are working for, what we are directing funds to and what the results are.
