This year we will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, the 40th anniversary of the Cambodian genocide and the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide. As we reflect we are reminded that the phrase 'Never Again' has been an unfulfilled promise and that genocide is not an event of the past but of our present.

To commemorate 100 Years of Genocide and to prepare to mark April as Genocide Awareness Month join us on March 26th at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for a panel discussion with Dr. Ellen Kennedy of World Without Genocide, Sara Cohan of Genocide Education Project and Omer Ismail, a survivor of the atrocities in Sudan and advisor with The Enough Project.

100 years ago, 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire were targeted, forced from their homes and systematically murdered. While many may continue to challenge this genocide took place, CHHE invites you to join us to remember those lost in 1915 and reflect on how we must call ourselves to action against the current atrocities in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Syria in 2015.

Our panelists will speak about their current work on making "Never Again" a reality and provide us with the tools and resources we need to translate rhetoric into reality.  We hope to see you on March 26th for a powerful evening to reflect on the last 100 years and empower us to stand up to genocide and atrocities for the next 100 years.
