Remembering the Armenian Genocide 100 years later

By Press Office

On 23 April, the 100th anniversary of the day marked as the beginning of the Armenian genocide, Ekklesia and Harecourt United Reformed Church co-hosted an important discussion on the subject.

The conversation took place between our associate Dr Harry Hagopian and co-director Simon Barrow. Topics included a brief history of the genocide, why naming the events 'genocide' matters, and the prospects for Armenians to receive justice on this issue. You can listen to the full discussion here.

A few days later, Dr Hagopian gave a talk to the St Yeghiche Armenian church (with introductory comments in Armenian.) You can watch the excellent speech here.
