On March 30, a photo exhibition of the works of Stepan Norayr Shahinyan
entitled "ExpoArmenia" opened in the Cordoba parliament building in
Argentina. On hand to open the exhibition were Vladimir Karmirshalyan,
Armenia’s Ambassador to Argentina, and Francisco Fortunan, Deputy
President of the Cordoba Parliament.

The exhibition is the result of talks held between the deputy speaker
of the Cordoba parliament and the Armenian ambassador that reviewed
the possibilities of economic and cultural relations between the two
countries. An agreement has been reached to establish a sister-region
relationship between Cordoba, where 8,000 Armenians reside, and one
of the regions in Armenia.

The idea behind the exhibition was conceived by the local chapter
of the AGBU. The Ritex Company provided financial assistance for the
event which is being sponsored by the Armenian Embassy in Argentina.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
