“Musa Dagh Girl” Author Speaks At Manchester Branch

At the Manchester Branch Library on Saturday, April 20, author Virginia Matosian Apelian will speak at 2:00 pm. She will discuss Musa Dagh, the first genocide of the 20th century waged by the Ottoman Turkish Empire against Armenia, an incident that continues to impact international relations and foreign policy even today. 

In her book, Musa Dagh Girl: Daughter of Armenian Genocide Survivors, Mrs. Apelian describes in great detail  her family’s ordeal when the Turks carried out atrocities against the Armenian people in 1915 and their subsequent flight from their homeland to other mid-eastern countries and finally to America. Copies of the book will be available for attendees to purchase and have signed by the author. 

This program is open to adults, free of charge. Please go online to www.theoceancountylibrary.org or call 732.657.7600 to register.

The Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 21 Colonial Drive in Manchester Township.
