ASP Film Screening | After this Day

Directed by Nigol Bezjian; 2016
Friday, March 17, 2017
4:30-6:00 PM
Room 1644 School of Social Work Building Map
This documentary revisits the stories of orphans and orphanages born out of the Armenian Genocide of 1915, particularly the orphanage of Antoura in Lebanon, where children were sent to be Turkified under the order of Jamal Pasha. The children experienced horrific circumstances, but this is ultimately a true story of how many endured to tell their stories of survival and death-defying courage. Bezjian uncovers how the children held onto their Armenian faith and language, while defying Pasha’s aims of destroying all vestiges of Armenian identity.

For the first time, the film brings together prominent Armenian and Turkish historians Vahé Tashjian and Dr. Selim Deringil to discuss and explore the history of Armenian orphans and orphanages that resulted from the Armenian Genocide.
