“Thank You, Pope Francis” for Commemorating the Armenian Genocide Centennial

Peace of Art, Inc. is completing its Armenian Genocide Awareness Campaign, “100 Billboards for 100 Years of Genocide” with one more billboard. Located on Route 1, at the junction with Route 27, this billboard displays a message of gratitude, and it reads “Thank You, Pope Francis, for Commemorating the Armenian Genocide Centennial.”
In April 2015, at St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis called the Armenian Genocide ” the first genocide of the 20th century.” The event was unprecedented, because, for the first time in history, the Pope mentioned the Armenian Genocide in his liturgy. Daniel Varoujan Hejinian, the founding president of Peace of Art, Inc. said that “Pope Francis called on all states’ leadership, international organizations, and world peace-loving communities, to recognize the truth and to oppose such offenses.” Hejinian further stated that “the number of Catholics in the Christian world in 2013 was estimated at around 1,254 billion people. Such a brave statement by the Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, definitely deserves high respect and appreciation. “
In January 2015, Peace of Art, Inc. launched the Armenian Genocide Awareness billboard campaign “100 Billboards for 100 Years of Genocide.” Throughout the United States and Canada, Peace of Art, Inc. displayed large electronic and stationary billboards, dedicated to the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, and honoring the victims of all genocides of the last one hundred years.
