Did the end of the First World War and the fall of the Young Turks in the autumn of 1918 put an end to the massacres of Armenians and other Christian minorities in a fallen Empire? To mark the 109th anniversary of the 1915 genocide, the Foundation is pleased to invite you to a lecture by Raymond Kévorkian, author of the book Parachever un génocide (Odile Jacob, 2023).

Raymond Haroutioun Kévorkian is a historian. With a doctorate in history, he taught for many years at the Institut français de géopolitique, Université de Paris-Saint-Denis, and was curator of the Nubar library in Paris. A former editor of the journal Histoire arménienne contemporaine, he has devoted most of his research to the Armenian genocide and has become the world’s leading specialist on the subject. A member of the Duclert Commission charged with reviewing France’s position during the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda, he is the author of some twenty works on Armenian issues. With this third volume, Parachever un génocide, Mustafa Kémal et l’élimination des rescapés arméniens et grecs (1918-1922), (Odile Jacob, 2023), he concludes his micro-history trilogy on the study of the Armenian genocide of 1915.

Gaïdz Minassian is a journalist with Le Monde and teaches at Sciences Po Paris.
