Federal Inter-Agency Holocaust Remembrance Program to Feature Armenian Genocide

The Federal Inter-Agency Holocaust Remembrance Committee

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Inter-Agency Committee will hold its 22nd Annual Holocaust Remembrance Program at the Lincoln Theater located at 1215 U Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009 on April 30, 2015 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The program is expertly designed to provide the experience through the voice of eyewitnesses:

  • Dr. Rouben Adalian’s predecessors were the survivors of the Armenian Massacre. As one of the elite Armenian Americans, he is the author of the Historical Dictionary of Armenia and he is the Director of the Armenian National Institute. 2015 is also marked as the 100th year of the Armenian Massacre.
  • Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff fled Nazi Europe in 1941 with her family when she was a small child.
  • Margit Meissner fled Austria in 1938 due to a rise in anti-semitism and the alliance between Austria and Nazi Germany.

The beautifully orchestrated program provides a rich experience and is highlighted with the Emmy Award-Winning Senior Political WJLA-TV/ABC7 News Anchor Scott Thuman, and graced with a musical rendition by Soprano Amy K. Kwon.

The Holocaust survivors, rescuers, liberators, resisters or witnesses or relatives of these individuals remind us of what can happen if prejudice, hate, and intolerance against any individual or group of people are not challenged by each one of us.
