Presentación sobre la Catastrofe de Smirna

“The Smyrna Catastrophe, 1922-2013”


An Illustrated Lecture in Tribute to Professor Marjorie Housepian Dobkin, Human Rights Advocate and Pioneering Author of Smyrna 1922: The Destruction of a City
 
by
 
Prof. Richard G. Hovannisian

This year marks the 92nd anniversary of the Smyrna Catastrophe, when much of the city, the second largest in the Ottoman Empire, was destroyed by fire during the final phase of the Greco-Turkish War. The calamity marked the end of a strong Christian presence in the historic Aegean coastal regions and turned hundreds of thousands of Greeks and Armenians into refugees.
In this illustrated lecture, Prof. Hovannisian will discuss the important role of Smyrna (Izmir) in modern Armenian history and the inferno that engulfed the city in September 1922. Hovannisian is the editor of the recently published Armenian Smyrna/Izmir, the 11th volume of proceedings from the UCLA conference series, “Historic Armenian Cities and Provinces.”
Hovannisian is the author of Armenia on the Road to Independence, the four-volume history, The Republic of Armenia, and has edited and contributed to more than 25 books including The Armenian Genocide in Perspective; The Armenian People from Ancient to Modern Times; Remembrance and Denial; Looking Backward, Moving Forward, and The Armenian Genocide: Cultural and Ethical Legacies. He is professor emeritus of Armenian and Near Eastern history at UCLA and is currently the chancellor fellow in the Department of History and the Rodgers Center for Holocaust Education at Chapman University in Orange, California.
