NEF Launches Traveling Exhibition

Apr 1, 2015

In honor of the Centennial of the organization’s founding and of the Armenian Genocide, NEF has created a 27-panel traveling exhibition.

They Shall Not Perish: The Story of Near East Relief features high quality reproductions of photographs and documents from the NEF archival collection. The exhibition chronicles the launch and legacy of Near East Relief (known as the Near East Foundation since 1930), which was founded in direct response to reports of genocidal acts against Armenians and other minorities in the Ottoman Empire in 1915. The organization raised more than $110 million through grassroots campaigns, saving more than 1 million lives and caring for 132,000 orphans over fifteen years.
