NEW HAVEN, CT — Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Conn., will host a screening of the film Orphans of the Genocide, followed by a question-and-answer session with the film’s writer and director, Bared Maronian, on Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m.

Orphans of the Genocide is a documentary created by the Armenoid Team that brings to life secret documents pertaining to the systematic Turkification campaigns of hundreds of thousands of Armenian orphans by the Ottoman Empire.

By the end of WWI, over 150,000 Armenian children were left parentless as a direct result of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Authorities. Near East Relief commissioned by the U.S. Congress catered to over 132,000 Armenian orphans alone. Orphans of the Genocide includes a feature interview by Maurice Missak Kelechian, whose findings unveiled the secrets of an orphanage in Antoura near Beirut, Lebanon, where 1,000 Armenian Genocide orphans were being turkified. Mr. Kelechian’s research prompted an article by award-winning journalist Robert Fisk of The Independent magazine. This documentary also includes testimonials from children of Armenian Genocide orphans.
