This exhibition showcases the descendants of Armenian Genocide survivors and their stories of survival and perseverance. Annotated photographs highlight the descendants holding an artifact or image associated with their Armenian Genocide survivor forbears. A brief narrative of survival accompanies each photograph. The images focus on life and hope.  From Armenia to Minnesota, it was here they found their dreams, their futures, and their families.  Their lives inspire reflection on the value of freedom and the enduring human spirit.
