Announcement Date: April 24, 2016

In June 2006, the symposium commemorated the 90th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide with three events: 1) the reading of one act of a play written by Lorne Shirinian, son of a survivor of the Genocide; Ms. Susan Barba’s presentation of an interview with her father, Andranik Vartanian, a 106 year old survivor of the Genocide; and a lecture on the Genocide by Dr. Margaret Brearley. Other sessions included “The New Antisemitism,” “The Hidden City of Warsaw,” “The Aftermath of Genocide,” “Contemporary European Responses to the Holocaust,” “Holocaust Scholars Confront the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict,” and “Writings of Women of Wroxton.” Two new edited volumes were proposed, one on “The Holocaust and Nature” and one on “The New Antisemitism.”
