ARMENIANS IN TURKEY 100 YEARS AGO
A presentation by Osman Köker

Prominent Turkish journalist and historian Osman Köker will present
his book Armenians in Turkey 100 Years Ago at the Armenian Library and
Museum of America (ALMA) on Thursday, May 19 at 7:30 p.m.

Köker first came to international attention in 2005 when he organized
the unprecedented exhibition “Sireli Yeghpayrs (My Dear Brother)” in
Istanbul. Eventually seen by thousands of people, it presented
photographs of Armenian life in pre-genocide Ottoman Turkey, drawn
from a large collection of postcards owned by the collector Orlando
Calumeno. In the five years since then, the exhibition has also been
mounted in Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Valence, Paris, Geneva, Yerevan
and London.

This special event, which marks Köker’s first public appearance on the
East Coast of the United States, is co-sponsored by ALMA, Friends of
Hrant Dink, National Asso- ciation for Armenian Studies and Research
(NAASR) and Project SAVE Armenian Photograph Archives. The event is
free and open to the public.

A reception will follow.
