Illinois to host Ottoman Genocides of Anatolian Christians symposium

Less than a month after the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center ran its first program on the Armenian Genocide, a two-day symposium covering even more ground is slated for the same venue, Skokie Review reported.

The Ottoman Turkish Genocides of Anatolian Christians: A Common Case Study will draw scholars from around the world to present original research on the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek genocides.

The conference, due on May 10-11, is moderated by Zoryan Institute Executive Director George Shirinian, who edited the book: “The Asia Minor Catastrophe and the Ottoman Greek Genocide: Essays on Asia Minor, Pontos, and Eastern Thrace, 1913–1923.”

Organizers include the Armenian National Committee, the Assyrian Center for Genocide Studies and the Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Center, which was founded by George Mavropoulos.
