International Day for the Commemoration of the Victims of Genocide

A public event to commemorate the first ever International Day of Commemoration of Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and its Prevention was held in Darling Harbour, Sydney on the 5th of December 2015. Information from the Greek Genocide Resource Center's website was on display along with a presentation by the Armenian Youth Federation.



School Projects

The following presentation was completed by students of Belleville New Tech as part of a project on genocide. The presentation consisted of a Pebble poster board which required 11 boxes of pebbles; which equated to the approximate 1 million death toll of the Greek Genocide (1 pebble=1 person). Also included were 2 laptops one of which hosted a timeline of events and the other a slideshow. The students also made 200 badges which were sold, the proceeds going to a Genocide awareness institution. The students referred to the Greek Genocide Resource Center for their project.
