UK Director, Michael McIntyre speaks about the important work of this organisation, creating multimedia resource materials for schools and training teachers to deal sensitively with the difficult questions of history. The Armenian genocide is one of more than 30 topics addressed by the Facing History team. In its series on “Crimes against Humanity and Civilization”, the resource package on the Genocide of the Armenians includes a resource book and companion DVD, Lesson plans for teachers, documentary DVDs, posters and a map. Tonight Michael McIntyre will use excerpts from the DVDs and we follow up with a showing of the companion DVD, The Genocide Inside Me, at our monthly Film Club showing the next evening at Pushkin House.

From the 1915 Armenian Genocide to contemporary North America, via modern Turkey, The Genocide Inside Me is a moving personal journey in which Canadian–Armenian filmmaker Araz Artinian confronts the reality of her life in the Canadian melting pot of cultures and asks herself the universal question “Where do I belong?”.
