Genocide scholars to speak at library

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE – Local scholars will examine U.S. policy in the
face of three 20th century genocides – the Armenian genocide, the
Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide – at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the
Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard Street.

The United Nations has designated Wednesday as an international day
of reflection, and Yom Hashoah, the day of remembrance for Holocaust
victims, is April 18, and the Armenian Genocide Commemoration Day is
April 24.

Jackie Karuletwa-Kakiza, the Rwandan trade representative to
California; Arlene Lazarowitz, Director of Jewish Studies at Cal
State Long Beach; and Levon Marashlian, a history professor at
Glendale Community College, will participate.

Reservations are required. For reservations and information, call
