The Armenian Genocide was a planned campaign by the Young Turk government to annihilate the Christian Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire. Embarked upon in 1915, during WWI, the deportation and decimation of the Armenians across Anatolia, modern-day Turkey, continued until 1923. (St. Gregory the Enlightener Armenian Church)
It is said that 1.5 million people died during the Armenian Genocide. This number includes 14-year-old Flora Munushian’s family.
My Mother’s Voice is Flora’s story as told by her daughter Dr. Kay Mouradian.
On May 1st, a documentary of the same name by Mark Friedman will be screened at the Pasadena Central Library followed by a discussion with Dr. Mouradian.
