“The City of Glendale’s Armenian Genocide Proclamation commemorating the month of April as the Armenian Genocide month, along with various events co-sponsored by the City, give the Armenian American community solace towards the tragedy that befell our ancestors almost a century ago and hope that proper recognition by the Federal and Turkish governments will one day come about,” said Harry Unell of the Armenian Council of America.
The City of Glendale’s Armenian Genocide Commemoration will be held at the Alex Theatre, Monday, April 25, 2011 starting at 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.). The Armenian Dramatic Arts Alliance, Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra, Glendale Youth Orchestra, and International School of Music Choir will participate. Steve Kurkjian will be the keynote speaker. This event has been a highlight of the city’s commitment to recognizing the Armenian Genocide, and civic events in the month of April have demonstrated its stand against other examples of man’s inhumanity to man around the world.
GTV6 will air the last ten years of Man’s Inhumanity to Man events in Glendale from April 18 through May 9.
