Oslo Concert Honors Memory of Armenian Victims

Posted: Mar. 6th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
Concert in Oslo

Genocide, and more specifically genocide denial, is a very tender topic not often broached in the international community, but Oslo has quite fearlessly launched a concert in memory of the victims of the state sponsored genocide of the Armenians in Sumgait, Azerbaijan despite the potential backlash from genocide deniers.

A piano concert in honor of the victims of the Armenian pogroms in Sumgait, Azerbaijan (in February 1988), was organized by the Armenian community of Norway.


The event that took place in Kampen Church in Oslo, featured a presentation on Azerbaijan's policy and links between the state-sponsored pogroms against in Sumgait in 1988 and anti-Armenian hate propaganda as well as persecution of author Akram Aylisli for his book Stone Dreams.
