Event Details

The Armenian Genocide - Reflections and Comparisons
Academic Workshop

Date: 8 May 2015
Venue: Birkbeck, University of London, Bloomsbury, WC1E 7HX. Council Room, Torrington Square main entrance
Time: 12.30 - 17.45

This year marks the centenary of one of the first genocides of the 20th century, committed during the First World War by the Young Turk regime against the Armenian population, and also against Assyrians and Greeks, in the Ottoman Empire.  Some two decades later Hitler famously cited the genocide of the Armenians as a precedent for the mass killings the Nazis were to carry out during the Second World War.

In this half-day workshop, a number of leading genocide scholars will reflect on some of the key issues raised by the Armenian genocide and on its significance in the wider context of the history of the 'crime of crimes', both in relation to the Holocaust and to other cases.
