The Diocese’s Krikor and Clara Zohrab Information Center will host a book presentation by Adrienne Alexanian, editor of her father’s newly published memoir, Forced into Genocide. The event will be held on Thursday, April 6 at 7 p.m. at the Diocesan Center in New York.

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. Incredibly, Alexanian experienced the Armenian Genocide as a conscript in the Turkish army. His memoir is a one-of-a-kind “insider’s account,” documenting the Genocide’s astonishing cruelty — but also its rare, unexpected acts of humanity.
