MISSION HILLS — The Ararat-Eskijian-Museum and The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) present “The Sins of the Fathers: Turkish Denialism and the Armenian Genocide” by Siobhan Nash-Marshall Mary T. Clark Chair of Christian Philosophy, Manhattanville College on Sunday December 10, 2017 at 4PM, Ararat-Eskijian Museum/ Sheen Chapel, 15105 Mission Hills Rd. Mission Hills Ca 91345.
In 1915 the government of the Ottoman Empire began systematically to rip Western Ar-menians off the lands where their ancestors had lived since time immemorial. It ordered that Armenian men be murdered, and the Armenian women, children, and grandparents be de-ported into areas of Syria declared unfit for human life. Most of the Armenians who man-aged to survive the death march were slaughtered there. In The Sins of the Fathers-the first part in The Betrayal of Philosophy trilogy-Dr. Siobhan Nash-Marshall connects the total dis-regard of fact and people, of lands and history that informed the Armenian Genocide and Turkish denial to what is today informing our world and culture.
Siobhan Nash-Marshall holds the Mary T. Clark Chair of Christian Philosophy at Manhat-tanville College. Author of many academic books and articles on metaphysics and the prob-lem of evil, she also has written books and articles for the general public-Joan of Arc: A Spir-itual Biography and What It Takes to be Free: Religion and the Roots of Democracy. In recent years, Nash-Marshall has devoted a lot of attention to genocide and genocide negationism. The Sins of the Fathers is her first book-length treatment of the topic. After the breakout of the war in Syria, Nash-Marshall and some friends founded the Christians In Need Foundation (CINF), through which they attempt to help the ancient Christian cultures of the world which are presently in peril.
