During the month of April, 2012, Peace of Art, Inc., will display the commemorative billboards of Armenian Genocide on Mount Auburn and Arsenal Streets in Watertown, MA, with the message “Mr. President, Don’t Turn your Back! Recognize the Armenian Genocide.”

This year, Peace of Art will display a second message on a digital billboard in Foxboro, MA, on Route 1 near Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place, with the message “Honoring the Memory of 1.5 million Lives. Recognize the Armenian Genocide.”

This simple message is written against an image of Der Zor, covered with 1.5 million lights, one for each life lost. The desert witnessed the remaining Armenians who were forced to their death march by the Ottoman Turks, and became the last resting place for many of the refugees. This digital billboard went up on Easter Monday, April 9, 2012, the day of Remembrance of the Dead.

The message on the Watertown billboards “Mr. President, Don't Turn Your Back! Recognize the Armenian Genocide,” is a message to President Obama urging him to honor his 2008 campaign promise to recognize the Armenian Genocide.
