“Cultural Genocide: Turkey” Exhibit Slated for Late April

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–A photo exhibit of destroyed Armenian cultural and architectural monumen’s in the territory of modern Turkey will open in Yerevan in late April–to coincide with the 89th anniversary of the Armenian genocide. The exhibit–Cultural Genocide: Turkey–will display photos depicting the current condition of monumen’s–alongside those of the monumen’s intact and in their original condition. Hundreds of Armenian monumen’s in Western Armenia (now eastern Turkey)–have been photographed for the exhibit.

Samvel Karapetian–chairman of a non-governmental organization studying Armenian architectural monumen’s–said the exhibit serves to expose Turkey’s destructive policy towards cultural values–as it strives to join civilized countries of the European Union.
