ATHENS (News Network, “Armenia”) — As part of the series of events dedicated to the 100ary of the Armenian Genocide, the Hellenic-Armenian Studies Center organized on Saturday March 7, 2014 at the Greek Cultural Circle “Phanos” (Lantern) in Piraeus an event entitled “Woman in the Work of Krikor Zohrab”

Writer Joseph Kassesian presented the life and work of the great Armenian patriot, writer and politician and actors Laurance Menentian and Haik Kassardjian red Zohrab’s short stories, A Happy Death, A Magdalene, Tefarik and Zavoulon, translated into Greek. Mr. Kassesian analyzed the character of the heroine of each of the short stories and commented on Zohrab’s style and social philosophy.

krikor zohrabAccording to the lecturer, Krikor Zohrap was part of a generation of intellectuals that had a very important role in the Armenian culture, a generation that came to life after decades of incubation that included the creation of an Armenian bourgeoisie in the Ottoman Empire, the opening of a big number of schools, the publication of numerous newspapers and reviews, the graduation of hundreds of Armenian students from European universities etc. The loss of that generation, underlined Mr. Kassesian, left the Armenian Diaspora intellectually leaderless and created in the cultural development of the Armenian nation a gap that was not filled up since. From that point of view, concluded the lecturer, one would be completely justified to say that the Armenian Genocide is still giving its evil fruits.
