After the Armenian Genocide or the first genocide of the Twentieth century, the Armenian people stayed silent. After the Holocaust, people cried "never again." Yet genocide has not gone away. "Roots of Evil: Continued Challenges for the Denial of Mass Human Rights Violation," a Symposium taking place on Friday, April 4, 2008 at Fordham University, Lincoln Center at 7:00 PM, will address the impact of genocide during the last one-hundred years--and the issue of genocide denial.

The Symposium, organized and chaired by Dr. Ani Kalayjian, Professor of Psychology at Fordham, is sponsored by the Armenian-American Society for Studies on Stress and Genocide (AASSSG), the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), New York, Fordham Psychology Association, Association for Trauma Outreach & Prevention (ATOP), Fordham Psi Chi and Meaningful World. It will commemorate those who died in the Ottoman Turkish Genocide and the memory of Hrant Dink, an Armenian-Turkish journalist who was assassinated in January 2007 for his views on freedom of speech.
The Symposium will include keynote speeches, musical entertainment, a reception, refreshments and networking.
