WASHINGTON — The Armenian National Institute (ANI) announced this week a major expansion of its website on the Armenian Genocide. A new section, titled Contemporary Press Coverage, consists of a compilation of more than 170 articles from some 50 mainstream media sources discussing the Armenian Genocide
The ANI website is one of the most fre- quently visited Internet resources on the Armenian Genocide.
The Contemporary Press Section demonstrates the growing public and international awareness of the Armenian Genocide with coverage spanning the globe, but especially from countries with English-language sources, including the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Israel. The new section contains articles focusing on the historical, political, legal and moral significance of the Armenian
Genocide. For instance, readers will find a series of articles tracing the evolution of the US discussion in the media and the ongoing effort for affirmation.
The section also conveys the world’s onetime awareness of the events and the facts of the Armenians Genocide and how the intervening decades of silence, followed by growing attention to human rights issues, reshaped that discourse on the meaning of the events of 1915.
The compilation provides 10 categories of coverage: Book Review, Editorial, Education, Feature Story, Film Review, Memorials, Opinion, Genocide Remembrance Day, Reporting and Restitution, demonstrating the scope and type of coverage garnered by this subject.
