ACOM Held a Talk on April 24th 2018 commemorating the Armenian Genocide of 1915.
Tom Keljik was the featured speaker and his topic was:
"Why did it happen? What were the events leading up to the Genocide".
The event was held in the auditorium of the St. Anthony Park Library in St. Paul. The event was well attended (43 at one count). Before the start of the event, Buttons calling for a remembrance of the Genocide were passed out to attendees. Tom also gave selected members of the audience colored cards with various pieces of information about times, places, and actions of historical significance leading up to the time of the Genocide. He used these during his talk, further involving the audience in the presentation.
