Another Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee of Canada project realized
Ottawa – “THE CALL FROM ARMENIA: Canada’s response to the Armenian Genocide” by Aram Adjemian, published with a generous donation from the Pastermajian foundation, will be soon available to the public at large.
On June 23rd, Senator Serge Joyal made a statement about the book in the Canadian Parliament, saying:
“I would like to bring to the attention of honourable senators a new book recently launched to coincide with the centennial commemorations of the Armenian genocide, which details Canada’s specific response to that genocide in 1915-16.
The book is titled The Call from Armenia: Canada’s Response to the Armenian Genocide, and it is written by Aram Adjemian, who is, as it happens, also a research assistant in my office. The book is illustrated with hundreds of archival documents, illustrations, photographs, advertisements, newspaper articles and editorial cartoons to enhance the reading experience. The book also presents new research regarding Canada’s specific reaction to atrocities perpetrated on the Armenian people by the Ottoman Empire from the late 19th century to the 1920s’.
