AGBU Europe is pleased to announce the release of a new educational package on the 1915 genocide for French speaking high school teachers and students in Belgium.

Produced by AGBU, under the label AGBU WebTalks, a series of online videos include four new segments with Belgian historian Bernard Coulie, as well as three existing segments that were subtitled in French. This series of videos highlights various aspect of the genocide, from the role of women to the one of the Kurds, including the step by step process of the genocide, the genocide of the Pontic Greeks and of the Assyrians, the historical link between Armenians and Belgium and the process of recognition of the genocide in Belgium. These videos will be released progressively on the website of AGBU Webtalks, at the following link: https://agbuwebtalks.org/

The printed study guide is available on demand at the CSCAB and at AGBU Europe’s office in Brussels, as well as in several official resource centers of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles in Belgium.

The educational package was created in partnership with the Armenian Socio-Cultural Center of Belgium (CSCAB) and the Jewish Secular Community Center David Susskind (CCLJ), with the state support of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
