An exhibition titled “150-year-old witnesses of the Armenian Genocide: Komitas Vardapet and Hovhannes Tumanyan” opened on Tuesday at the temporary exhibitions hall of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Foundation.



The exhibition is dedicated to the 150th anniversaries of two great Armenian intellectuals –Komitas Vardapet and Hovhannes Tumanyan.

The exhibition has two main directions: on one hand friendly and creative relationship of the two geniuses is illustrated, and on the other hand, the impact of the Armenian Genocide and its tragic consequences on them, the museum reports.



The bilingual (Armenian, English) exhibition consisting of eight panels includes original materials from the collections of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, as well as materials and photos from various archives and museums in Armenia. For the first time an excerpt from video testimony of Aghavni Mkrtchyan, a genocide survivor from Bitlis, on the relief work of Hovhannes Tumanyan in 1915 in Etchmiadzin among the Armenian refugees will be shown.



A wead-beads of a unique importance made by Varteres Atanesyan, one of the Armenian intellectuals exiled to Chankere on April 11/24, 1915, is presented among the original materials. The wead-beads is made on the way to Chankere. The names of 99 exiled Armenian intellectuals are engraved on the beads: the name of Komitas Vardapet is carved on the first grain.
