They Can Live in the Desert But Nowhere Else

Starting in early 1915, the Ottoman Turks began deporting and killing hundreds of thousands of Armenians in the first major genocide of the 20th century. More than 100 years later, this history remains controversial, but is critical to remember as a turning point in the history of genocide prevention, international law and human rights. Author and professor Ronald Grigor Suny will discuss the events in his new book They Can Live in the Desert, but Nowhere Else: A History of the Armenian Genocide. Free to the public with RSVP.
