Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is dedicating its annual conference to Genocide Victims


Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) is holding its annual conference, Genocide Memorial Day (GMD) on Sunday 22nd January 2012

{jcomments on} between 4 – 8pm at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS in London.  GMD is a day given to remember man’s inhumanity to man in the perpetration of genocides and genocidal acts. Its foundation is based on the argument by various thinkers that several genocides underpin the modern era.  Such genocides include the genocide of slavery, the near eradication of Native Americans, the extermination of populations in the Congo, and India, the Nazi Holocaust as well as more recent genocides and genocidal acts including that of the Palestinians, Bosnians, Central American peoples, Chechens, and in Rwanda to name but a few.

IHRC will be hosting a number of guest speakers from around the world including Professor Ilan Pappe of the University of Exeter and Hasan Nuhanovic a survivor from the Bosnian genocide.

If you need further information please contact IHRC on gmd@ihrc.org or visit www.genocidememorialday.org.
