DOWNTOWN CENTRAL LIBRARY - Adrienne G. Alexanian -- Forced Into Genocide
Memoirs of an Armenian Soldier in the Ottoman Turkish Army
- Date: 03/28/2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
- Location: Downtown Central Library
222 East Harvard Street
Glendale, California 91205
Adrienne G. Alexanian, the daughter of Yervant Alexanian, will discuss her father's death-defying experiences in the center of the Armenian Genocide. Like other Armenians of his generation, he was an eyewitness to the massacre and dislocation of his family and fellow countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during World War I. Alexanian was conscripted into the Turkish army—but unlike others so conscripted, he survived. His memoir is an “insider’s account,” documenting the Genocide’s astonishing cruelty. Ms. Alexanian is the daughter of Yervant Alexanian. She spent years preparing her father’s manuscript for publication.
