[FAR New York]: FAR Attends Conference on Cultural Genocide.

April 23, 2010

Representatives from FAR attended an international conference on Tuesday, April 20, which was organized by The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute and the Republic of Armenia Diaspora Ministry. The conference was held in the museum’s Erebuni Hall.

This particular event focused on cultural genocide — the destruction of the national, spiritual, and cultural heritage of a people. Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan opened. She was followed by panels moderated by representatives from Yerevan State University, Armenia’s Constitutional Court, and the Ministry of Justice from the Netherlands, among others. Experts also spoke about the genocide’s impact on Armenian art, language, and music.

The conference is one of the many events FAR has participated in this week as we approach the 95th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on April 24.
