Mini-posters by Collectif VAN: Honoring Armenian, Jewish, Tutsi and Darfur Victims

© A beautiful and meaningful set of posters designed by Séta Papazian for Collectif VAN [Vigilance Armenienne contre le Négationnisme]. Reprinted with the Permission of Collectif VAN.

Created on May 8, 2004, Collectif VAN, based in Issy-les-Moulineaux (Hauts-de-Seine, France), celebrated its five years of existence in 2009. It has carried out more than 60 awareness-raising activities about genocides and their denial. Original paintings by artist Marc Aram, dibasar, Marguerite Mateossian, Laurent Nissou and Vitche of the APAF (Association of the Armenian Artists in France), were shown on the front sides of the steles: representing huge silhouettes of men or women, 3 meters in height, they honored Armenian, Jewish, Tutsi and Darfuri victims.

GPN will publish other posters from this series in each of several forthcoming issues. For a brochure of the activities of Collectif VAN, see

A touching story from Collectif Van: In April 2010, a young Turkish student was at the center of a small commotion because while she had come to visit the Cathedral as a tourist, she stumbled on our exhibits and started crying over the crimes committed by Turkey. She seemed to be inconsolable, and we were moved to tears too, more than she was. She even decided to attend the Armenian Memorial service at Notre-Dame on that same afternoon. An intellectual from Turkey who was there too wrote an article about that touching encounter that appeared in Taraf, a progressive Turkish daily
