Traveling Armenian Genocide Exhibit in Montebello
Locals look over a traveling Armenian Genocide display at the Montebello City Hall on Wednesday, April 10, 2012 in Montebello, Calif. But survivors and descendents of the Armenian Genocide say that their hometown of Montebello has continuously helped give a voice to those who were brutally silenced.
"The importance of the exhibit is not only to call Turkey to task," Kirakosian said. "It's for education. It's to understand that we will never again allow this to happen. We have seen it in Darfur, Rwanda and other places. We have to, as a people, say genocide is not just a crime against humanity. It's a crime against all of us. "
The exhibit will be on display for the next week in the lobby of City Hall at 1600 W. Beverly Blvd.
