COMMEMORATION: 100TH COMMEMORATION OF THE GREAT CATASTROPHE

Sunday, April 7, 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Few today know of one of the first genocides of the twentieth century committed against the Greeks of the Black Sea, Pontos, and Asia Minor.  Rooted in ethnic and religious intolerance against Christian minorities, Ottoman Turkey committed brutal atrocities against its Greek population between 1913 and 1923.

We invited you to a symposium featuring scholars reflecting upon history, a legacy of loss, and the diaspora experience today: Theodosios Kyriakidis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki; Fatma Müge Göçek, University of Michigan; George Shirinian, The Zoryan Institute; and Alexander Kitreoff, Haverford College, PA.
