Akhalkalak Youth Center and Youth Union organized a two-day exhibition dedicated to the Commemoration of the Victims of the Genocide of Armenians in Western Armenia by the Ottoman Empire. The exhibition features photographs and paintings related to the tragic events of Armenian history.

The photographs in the exhibition were provided by the Javakhk Presbytery of the Armenian Apostolic Church, and the manuscript paintings were provided by the Akhalkalak School of Fine Arts.

Karin Tadevosyan, head of the Akhalkalak youth center, noted that it was the students’ initiative to show the population images that cannot leave people indifferent.

“To raise this issue, people must first know their past, have a clear idea of what they are fighting for, what they are demanding. We see that Turkey is continuing its criminal activities, as evidenced by the 44-day war and the 130-day blockade in Nagorno-Karabakh, where, among other inhabitants, 30,000 children live. This is genocide, genocide is not only done by killing, it is also done by displacement, deportation, depriving people of their homes”, commented Karine Tadevosyan.
