Genocide is a crime which we cannot possibly imagine in the present world. But nonetheless massacres, violence, terror and discrimination are not unusual even today. Generation has almost passed, everything remains in the past like all the inhumane events of the 20th century, and now all we can do is remember them, realise all the consequences and share this knowledge with next generations in order to avoid such history loops.
«1915» exhibition sets several goals. First of all it presents knowledge and memory. These horrific events of the past must not be buried in oblivion. It is the knowledge that shapes our worldview, thus we should not keep silent. We consider it a crime to deny or conceal the truth. It is our strong belief that the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire must be recognised first and foremost by the people, and then by the state itself. Today it seems almost impossible due to the political situation and tendencies worldwide. That is why we should communicate it to the community and to the new generation. Our main goal is to unite people and to prevent genocide perpetuation in future. To recognise, to accept and to prevent.
