Attorney Mark Geragos Speaks on the Armenian Genocide
On Saturday April 17th, highly celebrated attorney Mark Geragos gave an inspiring talk in Denver. His lecture on litigating Armenian Genocide-related court cases, and some of the avenues he and his law firm are currently endeavoring to further document the Armenian Genocide through a legal perspective was very educational. Armenian community of Colorado was in attendance and greatly appreciated this unforgettable lecture.
Following Mr. Geragos’ lecture, the film Ravished Armenia was shown – a 2009 restored and edited 24-minute segment of the remaining footage from a historic motion picture. Ravished Armenia or “Auction of Souls” was the first movie about genocide ever made in 1919 by director Oscar Apfel. It is a very powerful movie with genocide survivor Aurora Mardiganian playing the leading role.
A coffee and desserts reception followed the presentation. Special thanks go to all the volunteers who made this a wonderful and memorable event. We extend our gratitude to those who attended, and look forward to seeing more members from the community at upcoming events.
