AGBU LA-SFV Chapter Presents “Genocide Diaries: A Microhistory of Two Armenian Families by Vahe Tachjian”

  |   Canoga Park, CA   |   Event Details

In 1915, two Armenian families (the Bogharians and the Tavukjians) were deported from Aintab (in the Ottoman Empire), together with many other Armenian inhabitants of the town. In this lecture, based on his forthcoming book, historian Vahé Tachjian will attempt to recreate the quotidian world of deportees, ordinary lives caught in an extraordinary historical moment. 

Vahé Tachjian was born in Lebanon and earned a Ph.D. in History and Civilization at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris. His research covers the period of the French occupation of Cilicia, Syria, and Lebanon between the two World Wars, the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, and refugee problems in the Middle East.

Currently he is the chief editor and the project director of the Houshamadyan.org website.
