FRESNO — The Armenian Studies Program at Fresno State announces the publication of a new book, “Inside Constantinople: A Diplomat’s Diary During the Dardanelles Expedition, April-September, 1915” by Lewis Einstein, published by the Gomidas Institute (London), in cooperation with the ASP.

To mark the launch of the book, Ara Sarafian (Gomidas Institute, London) will present a lecture “Saving Armenians: The United States and the Armenian Genocide Thesis, 1915” at 7:30PM on Tuesday, April 1, in the University Business Center, Alice Peters
Auditorium, Room 191.
The lecture is co-sponsored by the Armenian Students Organization and the Leon S. Peters Foundation.

This talk presents new insights into the role of the United States in documenting the Armenian Genocide and publicizing the plight of Armenians in 1915. It stresses that the United States had access to vital information about the plight of Armenians, and that the United States embassy in Constantinople was staffed by extraordinary individuals who took a high moral stand and chose not to ignore the plight of Armenians. These embassy staff were headed by Ambassador Henry Morgenthau, but also included Special Agent of the State Department, Lewis Einstein, who made his own incredible contribution to our understanding of the Armenian Genocide.

Ara Sarafian is an archival historian specializing on late Ottoman history. He is the director of the Gomidas Institute, which is a leading research and publication center related to modern Armenian history.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking available at Fresno State Lots P5 and P6 with a free parking pass using code number 273411.
