In 1915, Turkish leaders declared their intent to eliminate “the Armenian problem” through forced deportations and massacres of Armenians living in the declining Ottoman Empire. According to the United Human Rights Council, the Armenian Genocide was named “the first genocide of the 20th Century” and resulted in the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians. Tonight’s event commemorates the centennial anniversary, as Armenian-Americans authors present their latest works exploring the genocide, the diaspora, and the lingering emotions felt by all Armenians to this day. With special screening of the documentary short Born in Adana.
