Northern Essex to host Genocide forum Dec. 5

Submitted by on November 30, 2012 – 3:30 pm

Northern Essex Community College’s Contemporary Affairs Club and Amnesty International Chapter will host a panel discussion on comparative genocides on Wednesday, Dec. 5 from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St.

The public forum will be held in the E Building, Room 155.
On hand will be representatives from beleaguered nations who have experienced genocide throughout recent times, presenting historical testimonies of their country’s plight through actual accounts.
The event is being co-sponsored by the Armenian Genocide Education Committee of Merrimack Valley, working in conjunction with Facing History and Ourselves, which has been offering programs throughout area high schools and colleges since 2007.

Moderator will be Albert S. Movsesian, a community activist. He will be joined by Haverhill Gazette columnist Tom Vartabedian, who will speak about the Armenian Genocide.

The forum is a follow-up to a previous classroom discussion on genocide earlier this year hosted by the club, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Russell, professor of history and government.
The public is invited to attend.
