Hayk Demoyan: an exhibition will be opened on April 24 at Armenian  Genocide Institute dedicated to 50th anniversary  of Tsitsernakaberd  Memorial

ArmInfo.An exhibition will be opened on April 24 at Armenian Genocide Institute dedicated to 50th anniversary  of Tsitsernakaberd Memorial, Hayk Demoyan, the Director of Armenian Genocide Institute Museum stated during the press  conference held in Yerevan on April 21.

"This is an interesting year, this year we commemorate 50th  anniversary of Tsitsernakaberd foundation".  The decision was taken  to open an exposition on April 24 dedicated to the history of  Memorial raising-from design arrangements, ground works and up to its  opening in 1967", Demoyan said. And in this context he added that  it's a good opportunity to summarize 50-year path.

Following his words, the exposition entitled as From Genocide to  Independence Recovery, opened in September last year and dedicated to  25th anniversary of Armenian Independence, will be opened for  visitors on April 24 as well. "We decided to present this temporary  exposition on April 24, because many of those who wanted to view it  in September last year could not do that due to various reasons. And  in May this year many items of exhibition are to be returned to their  owners. It will be another opportunity to view this pretty  interesting exposition", Demoyan said. 

At the same time he stressed it's already two years that the Armenian  Genocide Museum is open for visitors after rehabilitation, and one  could confidently state that almost every day it is visited by  Turkish tourists.

Talking about the performance of the Museum in general, Demoyan noted  that this year was a pretty successful one. "In June 2016 Germany not  only adjudicated Armenian Genocide, but also accepted its' deal of  fail in respect to this tragedy. Another significant event is the  opening of second permanent exhibition in Riga, dedicated to Armenian  Genocide in Ottoman Empire. During May-Dec 2016 the exhibition has  been visited by 15 thousand people. I think this figure is  significant enough", Demoyan said.
