Often referred to as the “Century of Genocides,” the 20th century was marked by the will of certain governments in power to carry out the planned physical annihilation of a human group.
Genocides of the 20th Century, presented at Scottsdale Community College, AZ, draws together the mass murders of the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire, of the Jews of Europe, and of the Rwandan Tutsis. In a frame of comparison, this exhibition seeks to draw similarities and heighten differences with each of these genocides and how their memory still lingers today. 
Committed for ten years to the awareness and the prevention of genocides, the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France) offers through this exhibition an educational opportunity giving everyone the key to understand the process that leads to the destruction of a population. This exhibit is a tool of vigilance for the present and the future.


This exhibition was designed, created, and distributed by the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris, France (curators Georges Bensoussan, Joel Kotek, and Yves Ternon), and made possible through the generous support of SNCF.
This presentation is held in conjunction with the fifth anniversary of the Genocide Awareness Week founded and led by Prof. John Liffiton. It was made possible through the support of the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles, the Embassy of France in the United States, The Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles, East Valley JCC, Alliance Française of Greater Phoenix, Arizona Jewish Historical Society, and SNCF.
