On April 24, 1915, Ottoman officials arrested 250 Armenian intellectuals who were accused of being a subversive fifth column. In the shadow of the First World War, this act marked the beginning of the first genocide of the 20th century. However, occurring decades before Raphael Lemkin coined the term “genocide,” the forced migration and murder of upwards of 1.2 Armenian people remains underappreciated in the modern history of crimes against humanity and the ensuing movement to codify and defend human rights. Join us for this co-sponsored webinar with the National Humanities Center as we confront the history of the Armenian Genocide while examining Armenian culture, identity, and influence in the United States.
