Memoirs of an Armenian Soldier in the Ottoman Army - Forced into Genocide
Book presentation, signing and reception - Free and open to the public. This memoir recalls Yervant Alexanian’s death-defying experiences in the center of the Armenian Genocide. Like other Armenians of his generation, he was an eyewitness to the massacre and dislocation of his family and fellow countrymen in Ottoman Turkey during World War I. Alexanian was conscripted into the Turkish army―but unlike others so conscripted, he survived. Join us as we hear Yervant's daughter Adrienne recount her father's experience during the first genocide of the 20th century.
