100 Years Later: Survival, Justice, Memory and the Armenian Genocide
November 17, 2014
Join the Department of Political Science, the Political Science Students’ Association, the Armenian Students’ Association, the Jewish Student Life and the Greek Students’ Association, for a very informative and interactive discussion featuring Raffi Sarkissian, founder and chair of the Sara Corning Centre for Genocide Education.
Sarkissian will discuss the challenges faced by Armenians in their pursuit of justice and as they work to remember and commemorate the Armenian Genocide, the state-sponsored expulsion and killing of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Today, activists in Toronto continue to raise awareness about the crime of genocide. We welcome you to participate and learn about why justice is important to the families of the victims and their descendants and the challenges they face while trying to pursuing it in Canada, Turkey and at the United Nations.
