The Assyrian American Cultural Organization of Arizona is proud to be sponsoring this year's Genocide Awareness Wee at Scottsdale Community College. 

Genocide Awareness week is a series of lectures, exhibits and stories by distinguished survivors, scholars, politicians, activists, artists, humanitarians, and members of law enforcement. 

The Assyrian American Cultural Organization and Seyfo Center have sponsored two excellent presenters for this year's program. Dr. Alda Benjamin, a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and Research Associate at the Smithsonian Museum, and Joseph Hermiz, a doctoral student in Late Ottoman/Modern Middle Eastern history at the University of Chicago. These distinguished scholars will present different reactions to Assyrian Genocide in the Post-World War I period. 

This event is Free and open to the public. Look forward to seeing everyone there!
