Conferences

The Caucasian Frontline of the First World War:
Genocide, Refugees and Humanitarian Assistance.


International Conference
Yerevan, April 21-22, 2014




Scandinavian



The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute of the National Academy of Sciences, Republic of Armenia, invites to participate at the international conference “The Caucasus Frontline of the First World War: Genocide, Refugees and Humanitarian Assistance” to be held on April 21-22, 2014 in Yerevan.

On the occasion of the centenary of the First World War the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute organizes an International Conference. The aim of the conference is to study the unknown historical facts on the military operations in the Caucasus Front of the WWI, existence of refugees in the regions of military actions and the implementation of genocide against the Armenian population on the territories of the former Ottoman and Russian Empires during the war.

As a peripheral area in comparison to the main European frontlines, where the decisive and widespread military actions took place, the Caucasus frontline was near the Near Eastern front and concentrated a lot of military recourses, thus playing decisive role in the outcomes of the war.

On the pretext of the War the Ottoman Government committed the planned Genocide against the Armenian population not only in the Western Armenia and throughout the Ottoman Empire, but also in the neighboring regions of Caucasus and North Iran. The Greek, Assyrian and Yezidi population of the region were also decimated.

The issue of the refugees and the humanitarian assistance in the Caucasus frontline was one of the key factors, because of the enormous masses of refugees in the regions, who had fled the Turkish massacres and were now withdrawing together with the Russian army. Numbers of Russian and Armenian humanitarian organizations were actively working during this humanitarian crisis (The Union of the Cities of Russia, the Russian Red Cross, Tatyaninsky Committee, Armenian and Syrian Relief Committee and etc.).


The following topics are among the issues covered by the Conference

• War and Genocide

• The Russian military men as witnesses of Genocide

• The Military photographers and a footages of the Caucasus frontline of the “Forgotten War”

• War and the science: archeological and ethnographical studies in Armenia during the War

• Crimes against humanity and civilization

• Status and faith of the prisoners of war and missing

• The War and volunteer movement

• Humanitarian assistance and refugees

• Charity in the Caucasus Front


The applications for the participation in the conference are accepted by December 1, 2013. The applications emphasizing the topic and thesis (3000 characters) should be sent to the organizational committee of the Conference WWI-conference@genocide-museum.am tel. +374 10 39 09 81.

The quality and relevance of the applications will be assessed by the Organizational Committee of the Conference.
