Opening of a Temporary Exhibition in Beirut, Lebanon



On April 28, a temporary exhibition “The Armenian Genocide: Frontpage Coverage in the Foreign Media” was opened in the hall of the Capuchins’ church in Beirut.

The opening of the exhibition has been organized with the joint efforts of the Central Body of Lebanon for the commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, and with the support of Beirut Municipality.

“Armash” choir of the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia, headed by Archimandrite Torgom Tonoyan, and “Krunk” choir (choirmaster: Doctor Edward Torikian) participated in the opening of the exhibition.

The spiritual and secular leaders of the Lebanese Armenian community, the representatives of its various community bodies and other invitees were present at the opening of the temporary exhibition “Armenian Genocide: Frontpage Coverage in the Foreign Media.”

The exhibition includes about 70 Russian, American, Italian, French and British periodicals of 1860 to 1922, the front pages of which have reference to the Armenian massacres and its consequences. Aharon Shkhrtmyan had a speech in Armenian and Arabic on behalf of the Lebanese Central Body of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

Primate of the Armenian diocese of Lebanon, Archbishop Gegham Khacheryan, noted in his closing speech that 97 years after the Armenian Genocide, the Armenian nation resolutely moves ahead to achieve his just rights. “The just right of the Armenian people must remain ever living in our people’s memory, which the survivors passed on to their sons. As for collective memory, it should be handed down from generation to generation,” the Primate stressed, adding that it is our duty to keep that memory, as it is a holy bequest for us which we are to transfer to the next generations. During the Sunday liturgy, the visitors had an opportunity to get acquainted with these valuable archive documents proving the fact of the Armenian Genocide.

During 2012 the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute will hold temporary exhibitions on other subjects relating to the Armenian Genocide in Denmark, Sweden and the USA.
