New Survivor Stories Coming Your Way!

It is often quoted that those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. Never is that sentiment more important than in regards to genocide. Unfortunately, we still live in a world where it is acceptable to deny genocide or defend its perpetrators. That is the reason our End of Atrocity series and the various interviews we conduct with Armenian and Tibetan survivors are so important. The Armenian Genocide, which is generally considered by most scholars to be the first modern genocide, is still routinely denied around the world and is only recognized by 43 out of 50 states within the United States. Meanwhile, the Tibetan cultural genocide is ongoing as Tibetans fight to regain their rightful place in relation to the Chinese government.

Over the the course of the next few months, 3 Generations hopes to expand its collection of Armenian and Tibetan survivor stories. As such, 3G has connected with the New York Armenian Home in Flushing, Queens where we hope to interview Azniv, a 104 year old survivor of the Armenian genocide, along with her daughter, Arpi. Likewise, 3G has reached out to Rinchin Dharlo, current president of the Tibet Fund here in New York and former North American representative to the Dalai Lama, and Thupten Jinpa Langri, who has held the position of principle English translator and interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the past 29 years.

In our experience, it is far more difficult to deny a human atrocity when a survivor lays out his or her unfiltered experiences. Please join us in rallying around the survivors and help us capture their stories so they are not lost to history.

Thupten Jinpa Langri: Voice and Visionary

Thupten Jinpa Langri

Our Tibetan voices project continues this summer with planned interviews with two Tibetans, including Thupten Jinpa Langri, the principle English translator and interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the past 29 years.  Jinpa-la recently appeared in Tricycle Magazine, discussing the relationship of Tibetan Buddhism with the West. 

A religious scholar with qualifications from both the East and West, Jinpa-la has a lot of knowledge to impart, which is why 3 Generations will be interviewing him about his vison for a world without atrocity.  Inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we are recording the voices of visionaries like Jinpa-la because if we cannot imagine a better world, we cannot create one.

Thanks for your support as we continue to ampify the voices of Tibetans and work toward a world without atrocity.
