Conference on the International Day of Remembrance of Victims of Genocide and Genocide Prevention.

In cooperation with the Armenian General Benevolent Union Lebanon (AGBU) and the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut.

As is well known, denial is the last stage of every genocide. But why are crimes against humanity persistently denied despite abundant documentation? What are the reasons for such defensiveness? What forms does denial take? And how can this defensive attitude be overcome? The Lepsiushaus Potsdam, the human rights organization Working Group Recognition — Against Genocide, for International Understanding e.V. (AGA) and the Association of Activists Against Racism, Nationalism and Discrimination e.V. (AKEBI) want to address these questions at a joint event with contributions from various perspectives.
