Armenian Genocide Memorial in Cleveland – Russ Arslanian

Russ Arslanian served as MC at the Commemoration of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide in the Rotunda of Cleveland City Hall on April 24, 2015. He spoke of hope that the Armenian Genocide would finally be recognized as just that, genocide.

 He told of his own family’s suffering and murder at the hands of the Turks. He was gratified by Pope Francis calling the Armenian massacre genocide and spoke of the long and ongoing history of Christian martyrdom in the region.
