New Website Launched - "www.TeachGenocide.org"
http://www.ancsf.org/press_releases/2004/1142004.htm

San Francisco, January, 2004 - The Bay Area Armenian National Committee
reached the second major milestone in its education project by publishing
TeachGenocide.org, a website designed specifically for school teachers,
providing extensive classroom-specific resources for teaching about the
Armenian Genocide. The project is part of the Bay Area ANC’s "Tolerance
Through Education" campaign developed in collaboration with ANC’s national
and regional headquarters and a network of local chapters. Having
published the comprehensive lesson plans for teachers in August with the
San Francisco Unified School District, the Bay Area ANC recognized the need
for a complementary curriculum-based website and began work on
"TeachGenocide.org."

Designed by Bay Area ANC Education Project Director Raffi Momjian,
TeachGenocide.org is targeted to school teachers, administrators, and
students, providing easily accessible documents which are appropriate for
classroom use in curriculum dedicated to subjects linked to human rights,
genocide, World War I, and the Armenian Genocide in particular. In addition
to lesson plans, teachers can download a bibliography of historical texts,
news coverage, maps, photographs and age-appropriate literature, including
poems and prose, as well as a list of websites on the Armenian Genocide
compiled by the Armenian Genocide Resource Center.

The Armenian Genocide is a required part of the curriculum in California,
Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. "Having talked to
teachers at national conferences and in local school districts, we know
that many are interested in including the Armenian Genocide in their lesson
plans. We hope that TeachGenocide.org, coupled with our recently published
lesson plans, will help teachers effectively bring this history to their
students," said Momjian.

One of the most engaging sections of the site provides personal accounts
from genocide survivors. The survivor accounts are the result of the
efforts of the Genocide Project, which showcases the work of photographers
Ara Oshagan and Levon Parian. Their photographic portraits and interviews
with survivors were featured in the Los Angeles Times and exhibited in
government buildings and private venues across the country.

The 5-minute video "The Armenian Genocide," produced by Peter Jennings in
1999 for ABC News’ World News Tonight is also available to download from
the "Videos" page of the website. Other videos about the Armenian Genocide
are also listed and can be obtained from the ANC or the Armenian Film
Foundation.

Within the "Teaching Guides" section of the site, the handbook, "The
Armenians - Shadows of a Forgotten Genocide," published by the Holocaust
Resource Center in Bayside, New York is available, as well as the "Model
Curriculum For Human Rights and Genocide," published by the California
Department of Education, and the Bay Area ANC’s lesson plans, "Human Rights
and Genocide: A Case Study of the First Genocide of the 20th Century –
Comprehensive Lesson Plans for Teachers." All of the above teaching guides
can be downloaded from the site in their entirety.

Descriptions of other genocides and gross human rights violation are also
included in the site: that of the Native Americans, the Transatlantic Slave
Trade, the Great Famine in the Ukraine, the Holocaust, the Rape of Nanking,
Mao Tse-tung’s Cultural Revolution, the Cambodian Genocide, Ethnic
Cleansing in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Rwandan Genocide. A
comparative chart illustrates the similarities and the differences between
the various genocides. The United Nation’s definition of genocide and its
Universal Declaration of Human Rights are also available.

"TeachGenocide.org," is being expanded daily, as more resources are
developed and others are made available electronically. "We are
communicating with teachers regularly and will continue to incorporate
their suggestions on the website," said Momjian. "We also look to
Armenian-Americans across the country to make their local school teachers
aware of this website and the teaching materials which are being made so
accessible for the first time."

Greco El: Не знаю, по рассылке пришло.
Pascal: Но ведь главное начать.

Как-то меня спросили (не в Армении) почему в книгах по истории так много сказано о геноциде евреев и нет ни строчки о геноциде армян? А еще сказали, что они конечно об этом знают и некоторые их друзья (в основном PHD или профессоры) тоже знают, но рядовые граждане об этом даже не слышали.

Почему, да почему. Потому что геноцид евреев - факт общепризнанный в мировом масштабе. Потому что Израиль существует уже около 60 лет, а независимая Армения - только 12 (до того - это не Армения, а СССР)... Ну и потому что - евреи...

Вот именно. Почти так я и ответил, что если бы геноцид армян был признан официально, то его тоже включили бы в учебники по истории и т.д. и т.п. Признавать геноцид Турция как-то не спешит, значит нужно действовать с другой стороны.
