Family of shadows : a century of murder, memory, and the Armenian-American dream by Garin K Hovannisian( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As war rages through Europe in 1915, Ottoman authorities commence the systematic slaughter of 1.5 million Armenians--the first genocide of modern history. A teenage boy named Kaspar Hovannisian is among the survivors who escape their ancestral homeland and build communities around the world. In the San Joaquin Valley of California, he cultivates a small farm and begins investing in real estate. But memories of Armenia burn strong--a legacy of love, anguish, and faith in a national rebirth. Kaspar's son Richard leaves the family farm to help pioneer the field of Armenian studies in the United States, becoming a worldwide authority on genocide. Richard's son Raffi, also haunted by the past, leaves his Los Angeles law firm in 1989 to play a role in the creation of a new and independent Republic of Armenia. Now, in a moving book that is part investigative memoir and part history of the Armenian people, Raffi's son Garin tells his family's story.--From publisher description
1915 the movie( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exactly 100 years after the Armenian genocide, Simon Abkarian, a director, is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that crime, forgotten and denied for an entire century. The play stars his enigmatic wife Angela Sarahyan as an Armenian woman in 1915 who must make a tragic and controversial decision that will change the course of history. This is not an ordinary performance. As protesters surround the theater before showtime, and a series of strange accidents spreads among the play's cast and producers it appears that Simon;s mission is far more dangerous than we think-and the ghosts of 1915 are everywhere
