Genocides represent some of the darkest moments in human history, when entire communities were targeted and killed for their ethnicity, religion, or political beliefs. The most horrific genocides took place during World War II, but there have been many since then that have decimated populations, for example, in Rwanda, Pakistan, and, more recently during the Sri Lanka Civil War.
For the Last Genocide Memorial competition, Bee Breeders has partnered with the Tamil-Canadian community, calling for designs for a memorial that will commemorate the victims of these atrocities. The Tamil-Canadian community, with the help of the mayor of the City of Brampton, Patrick Brown, and Regional Councilor Martin Medeiros, are looking to establish a Tamil Genocide Education Week in Ontario that would officially recognise the Tamil deaths during the Sri Lankan Civil War as a genocide, with the hope that it is the last one we ever see.
The Last Genocide Memorial should educate visitors of the causes and impact of these terrible events, recognising how they still affect communities today in a way that shows respect to the individuals who lost their lives during genocides.
The Last Genocide Memorial competiton is open until November 12, 2021, with winners of the 10,000 € prize fund to be announced on February 25, 2022. For more information and details of how to enter, visit https://architecturecompetitions.com/genocidememorial.
