Scottsdale to host Genocide Awareness Week Apr 11-16

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Holocaust, atrocities in Africa, the Genocide of Armenians, persecution of Jehovah’s Witnesses and genocide of Native peoples in the Americas are among several important topics to be covered at this year’s Genocide Awareness Week at Scottsdale Community College, Scottsdale, Arizona.

The fourth annual “Genocide Awareness Week: Not On Our Watch” will be April 11-16, with most events taking place in the school’s Turquoise Room. All events and exhibits are free and open to the public, Scottsdale Independent reports.

Among the highlights of the event are a panel discussing criminal courts and tribunals, a lecture addressing the psychological impact of being a concentration camp survivor, an overview of how the native peoples of South America fared under the New World conquest and the premiere of a film documentary examining daily life in a Syrian refugee camp.

Exhibits such as “Iconic Images of the Armenian Genocide” will be in the lobby of the Student Center throughout April. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. will provide a photographic essay on the Holocaust during the conference.

As in the past, workshops for educators and law enforcement training sessions will be part of the conference.

The event concludes with a Genocide Memorial Service Monday, April 25 at SCC.
