LINCROFT, NJ – The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on Sunday, April 12 with a special reception in Lincroft.
The event will showcase “A Journey to Life: Armenia,” an interactive exhibit featuring the personal histories of local Armenian survivors and their families. Internationally recognized Armenian scholar Khatchig Mouradian will introduce the exhibit and its historical content.
Other offerings include an artistic exhibit of three-dimensional Armenian cityscapes designed and created by hundreds of middle school, high school and college students throughout New Jersey.
Chhange will also release its new book “Hundred-Year Legacy of Courage: Celebrating the Lives of Armenian Genocide Survivors in Our Community.”
The publication shares the personal accounts of 54 individuals who managed to survive the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of more than one million Armenians beginning in April 1915.
