YEREVAN, 11 APRIL, ARMENPRESS. Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation has
signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Armenian Genocide
Museum-Institute. As the Public Relations Department of the Armenian
Genocide Museum-Institute reports to “Armenpress”, the memorandum
signed by Hayk Demoyan and Steven Spielberg lays the foundation for
future cooperation.

Through cooperation, the memoirs of 60 eyewitnesses of the Armenian
Genocide will be digitized and will be publicly available as part of
the Armenian Genocide Collection of the U.S.-based Shoah Foundation
starting from April 24th, on the occasion of the Centennial of the
Armenian Genocide.

The memorandum will also provide the AGMI with the Shoah Foundation’s
Virtual History Archives, thanks to which scholars and average
citizens of Yerevan will have direct access to 52,000 collections
devoted to the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide and the Armenian
Genocide. Both institutions will also collaborate to carry out
educational programs.
