Armenian Genocide Centennial Commemorated at Cranston Public Library

In recognition of the Armenian Genocide centennial, Cranston Public Library will host “The Armenian Genocide: 100 Years Later” at the Central Library on Tuesday, June 23 at 7:00 pm. Join Pauline Getzoyan, Co-Chair of the Genocide Education Project's Rhode Island Branch, for a candid discussion about the history of this event.

The presentation will explore the various stages of the Armenian Genocide of 1915, the continued denial surrounding the events, and the effects of the experience on survivors. The discussion will include a number of personal testimonies, readings from first-hand accounts, and a closing Q&A session.
