The 24th of April 2015 marked the centenary of the Armenian genocide. With the aim to remember it, the European Observatory on Memories promotes this exhibition with photographs by Andreu Fernández (photojournalist) and text by historian David Devesa, produced by the City Hall of Santa Coloma de Gramanet. A roundtable will take place on May 21 to discuss the causes and consequences of the genocide with the participation of Armen Gabriel Sirouyan, spokesman for the centenary of the Armenian Genocide; Sarkis Hakobyan, representative of the Ararat association; David Bondia, professor of International Law at the University of Barcelona; and photojournalist Andreu Fernández.
