The Bangladesh Genocide-1971



25.03.2022

March 25 is the Bengali Genocide Remembrance Day, which commemorates the victims of the 1971 genocide in Bangladesh. And in this regard, we talked to a bengali genocide scholar Mofidul Hoque․

With the launch of a military "Operation Searchlight" in Eastern Pakistan (Bangladesh) on March 25, Pakistan aimed to suppress Bangladesh's right to self-determination. Pakistan's actions lead to genocide, causing many deaths. March 25 is the Day of Commemoration of the Bangladesh genocide when Bengali people commemorate the victims of the 1971 massacres. What kind of official commemoration ceremonies are held in Bangladesh on March 25.

- Pakistan, since its inception in 1947, has established a domination of Western part over the Eastern wing, that started with the denial of language right and took the form of cultural, economic, administrative and political domination.


SOGHOMON TEHLIRIAN: THE ASSASSINATION OF TALAT



15.03.2022

After the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, its new government decided, under pressure from the Allies, to prosecute members of the Young Turk government and the central committee of the Union և Progress Party for dragging the Ottoman Empire into the war and organising the deportation and massacre of the Armenians. The main group of culpable Young Turks (Mehmet Talat, Ismail Enver, Ahmed Cemal, Behaeddin Shakir, Mehmet Nazim, Osman Bedri and Hussein Azmi) had, however, already escaped responsibility and criminal arrest by leaving on a German warship on November 1, 1918.

In autumn 1919, the 9th general assembly of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) in Yerevan, set up, in conditions of the strictest secrecy, a special mission (Hatuk Gortz) under the leadership of Armen Garo, (RA Ambassador to the United States), tasked with finding and suitably punishing the Young Turk organisers and perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide.

Soghomon Tehlirian (1896-1960) is rightly considered to be the most famous figure in the special operational group (operation “Nemesis”) and may be considered as a symbol of Armenian revenge. This is due not only to the fact that his target was that most famous criminal, Talat, but also because his trial was widely publicised.

THE SUMGAIT MASSACRES: FEBRUARY 1988



28.02.2022

The reopening of the Artsakh issue became one of the manifestations of Gorbachev’s policy of restructuring (перестройка) and publicity (гласность). A special session of the Nagorno-Karabakh Regional Council decided, on February 20, 1988, to request the withdrawal of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic from the Azerbaijan SSR, and for its unification with Soviet Armenia. It also requested that the Supreme Soviets of Azerbaijani SSR and the Armenian SSR mediate before the Supreme Soviet of the USSR for a positive solution of the issue.

In response to the just legal decision of the Armenians of Artsakh to exercise their right to self-determination, massacres and mass deportations of the Armenian population began in the Armenian-populated regions of Azerbaijan in February 1988. The first victim of Azerbaijan's policy of forcibly suppressing the free will of the people of Artsakh became the city of Sumgait’s Armenian population. It was there that, on February 27-29, the Armenian population of the city was annihilated exclusively for being Armenian. This was despite the city being considered a symbol of internationalism.

Righteous Armenians of the Holocaust



01.02.2022

The stories of the genocides are full of tragedies and atrocities. Hundreds of thousands of people were involved in the murder process, becoming mass murderers.

Teaching the history of the Armenian Genocide has become mandatory in another US state



14.01.2022

Teaching about genocide will be mandatory in middle and high schools in the state of Massachusetts in the United States of America. On February 2, 2021 a group of lawmakers submitted bill No. 692 to the Massachusetts Senate and the House of Representatives for approval on teaching about genocide which was signed by the governor on December 2, 2021, thus gaining legal force. It will be implemented in the new academic year, from July 1, 2022.

The bill is the result of 12 years of consistent work. It was drawn up by Senator Michael Rodrigues, who initially included only the history of the Jewish genocide in the draft. However, seeing the American public ignorance of the crimes committed against humanity during World War I and II, the bill was expanded to include other genocides of the 20th century. The law intends (a) To achieve and promote the teaching of human rights issues in all districts, with particular attention to the study of the inhumanity of genocide, including but not limited to the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, the Famine-Genocide in Ukraine known as Holodomor, the Pontian Greek Genocide, the forcible transport of Africans to the Americas in the slave trade in the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, the violence committed against indigenous people in the Americas, and more recent atrocities in Bosnia, Cambodia, Rwanda, and Sudan.

Moreover, it is possible not just to see, but also to enlarge each image, read their main texts and explanations and to examine the exhibits themselves.

The above-mentioned exhibition will be open in the museum until April 23, 2022 and will be permanently available in the virtual version.


The khachkar on Tsitsernakaberd height dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Sumgait crime has been repaired



11.01.2022

The khachkar in the Tsitsernakaberd memorial garden dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Sumgait crime was restored in October last year. It had been erected there on April 24, 1988, watched by large numbers of people and emphasizing that the Sumgait tragedy is the continuation of the Armenian Genocide.

The ethnic cleansing and mass deportation of the Armenian population of Sumgait in Soviet Azerbaijan by the Azerbaijani authorities, from February 27 to 29, 1988, was aimed at preventing the further spread of the Artsakh movement and to threaten the Armenians with future bloody actions. The number of victims of the Sumgait massacre is still unknown. According to the official data from the USSR Prosecutor's Office, the number of people killed is 26 but, according to unofficial data, is several hundred.

The massacres organised at the highest state level in Sumgait on February 27-29 have not yet received an adequate political and legal assessment.


Dear visitor,


The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute will be closed from December 31 till January 3, 2022.

Sincerely,
The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Foundation
