A Memorial Ceremony in Honor of the Norwegian Missionary and Armenia Advocate Bodil Biørn

At 10.40am, on July 22nd of 2008, the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute is sponsoring a memorial plaque dedication ceremony in honor of the famous Norwegian missionary Bodil Biørn.

The ceremony will begin at the AGMI’s Gomidas Hall with the presentation of the film “They call me mother”; a featured movie at the 2008 “Golden Apricot” Film Festival. Attending the ceremony are the members of Bodil Biørn’s family traveling from Norway to Armenia.

The ceremony will also feature the presentation of a photo album of Eastern Armenia captured by Bodil Biørn. This greatly preserved album includes photos of the Armenian Genocide and images of life after the genocide. The presentation will also introduce letters, journals and other testimonial documents that authenticate the genocide of 1915.

At 12am, the ceremony will be concluded with the placement of a piece of soil bringing from the tomb of Biørn in the “Memorial Wall” of the Tsisernakaberd Memorial Complex.
