Center for Armenian Remembrance

Jump to: navigation, search

The Center for Armenian Remembrance (CAR) is dedicated to both remembering our past and crafting our future.

As you know, Armenians have always been a proud and strong people striving to better their collective condition in the face of great adversity, massacres and Genocide. In the last 120 years, 1.8 million Armenians have been killed at the hands of Turkish aggression and more than a million were forced from their ancestral homeland, never to return.

To this day, the Armenian Genocide continues. It continues because it is not officially recognized in the United States home to the largest Armenian population, some two million, outside of the Republic of Armenia. The Genocide also continues when parts of our collective history are forgotten or remain untold. To that end, CAR is committed to publishing new works about Armenian history and historical events. In November, the Center for Armenian Remembrance published the first in a series of novels about historical Armenian figures, “The Case of Misak Torlakian.” The next book in the series, “The Case of Soghomon Tehlirian”, will come out in December of 2006, to be followed by “Vahan Cardashian: Advocate Extraordinaire of the Armenian Cause” and “British Policy and the Armenian-Greek Section”, to come out in January and February of 2007. Information about these novels is available in our Publications Section.

So, that we also remember those who survived, the Center for Armenian Remembrance, will be digitalizing the biographies of over 14,000 orphans of the Genocide and placing them on-line at our website,, where their forgotten stories can be told..

To put a personal touch and to insure that each person's unique story is told, CAR also provides tools for individuals to tell their family stories and create their own family tree.

To achieve these goals and continue the great work which CAR has already undertaken, we look to the support of the community. We invite you to make a tax deductible donation to the Center for Armenian Remembrance (CAR) so that we can continue funding research, digitalizing orphan biographies, supporting Armenian authors, and educating the community.
