The Armenian Genocide Museum of America (AGMA) is dedicated to educating the public about the Armenian Genocide and its continuing consequences. Visitors will learn how the international community's failure to condemn the genocide and hold the perpetrators accountable made the Armenian Genocide a prototype for later crimes against humanity. The AGMA honors the victims and survivors of the 20th century's first genocide by highlighting the historic identity of the Armenian people, their art and culture, and their perseverance in the face of adversity. With resonant content, the online museum reinforces the universal message of our common humanity and collective responsibility, and explains why the story of the Armenians and other peoples who have suffered similar fates must be told. The online museum offers a place for reflection and learning filled with hope, inspiration, and a commitment to eradicating the scourge of genocide through education and a focus on prevention.
