"Forced into Genocide" - A Book Presentation by Adrienne G. Alexanian at AGBU

Arts and Culture Armenian Genocide

Description

"Forced into Genocide" is the riveting memoir of Yervant Edward Alexanian: an eye-witness to the massacre and dislocation of his family and countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during World War I.

Adrienne Alexanian, Yervant's daughter and the recipient of the 2010 Ellis Island Medal of Honor, has spent years preparing her father's manuscript and will present this one-of-a-kind "insider's account" documenting the Genocide's astonishing cruelty- but also its rare, unexpected acts of humanity.
