More Turks Visited Armenian Genocide Museum-¬Institute during Last Month than during 15 Years of its Existence

The most inspiring and modest result of the activities of the Armenian Genocide Centennial events and the Armenian Genocide MuseumInstitute is the daily visit of the Turkish tourists to the museum. Director of Armenian Genocide Museum­Institute Hayk Demoyan said during his meeting with the journalists that more Turks visited the museum during the last month than during the 15 years of museum’s existence.

“Turks’ visits to the Armenian Genocide Museum­ Institute have become a regularity. The greatest and the most impressive thing for us is their silence. If earlier they used to come with certain skepticism, made inquiries, cast doubts, today they do not have reasons for questioning,” “Armenpress” reports, Demoyan stated, adding that to some extent they had reached the goal, i.e. affect the Turkish society so that they began meditating and understanding why a new chain of events occurred in terms of international recognition all over the world, but other thing was imposed within their borders.

“Why exhibitions are organized on government level in Paris and over 40 cities of France, why state officials visit Tsitsernakaberd. This complex of “Whys” will lead to an important objective, so that we become able to change approaches among future Turkish generation, so that they understand in the first place that their authorities distort the reality,” noted Demoyan.

“I remember and Demand” experts forum is held in Yerevan where the results of Armenian Genocide Centennial events are being summarized.
