Presentation of Italian historian’s book about Armenian Genocide to be held in Moscow

10.09.2007

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ By initiative of the Russian-Armenian Commonwealth, presentation of Italian historian Giovanni Guaita’s book about Armenian Genocide titled “Sheikh Fayez Al-Hussein about Armenian Genocide: Islam is not privy to their deeds” will be held in the hall of the Russian state library after M Rudomino in Moscow September 11. Yerkramas, the newspaper of Armenians of Russia, reports that the evidence of Fayez Al-Hussein, a witness of the Armenian Genocide, will be for the first time presented in the Russian language. He wrote his memoirs in 1916, when the details of the witnessed tragedy were still burning his memory. As a Muslim, Al-Hussein wanted to defend Islam and prove that the committed crimes conflict with Koran’s commandments and it’s the Young Turks’ government, who is responsible for the atrocities.

The author of the book has furnished a preface, detailed scientific and historical comments.

Diplomats, politicians and representatives of academic, analytical and public organizations are expected to address the presentation attendees.
