AGBU Cairo invited Lebanese Armenian researcher, writer and scholar Dr. Kevork Yazedjian for two interesting lectures at AGBU Cairo’s Chaker Cultural Center in Heliopolis, the first on Kilikia’s Catholicus Karekin Hovsepyan on Wednesday 13 November, and the second on Saturday 18 November 2018 on the setback of Gars battle.

Dr. Kevork Yazedjian was also the corrector/reviser of the Arabic translation of Dr. Raymond Kevorkian’s “The Armenian Genocide” book published by AGBU Cairo in April 2016.

The first lecture on Catolicus Karekin Hovsepyan, was about the Holiness’s life and achievements and his visits to Egypt in the forties and his meetings with the Egyptian Armenian community. The second lecture on Saturday 15th November was on the setback of the Gars Battle in 1920, the factors which led to this defeat, and the lessons drawn from this dark spot of Armenian history.

The lectures were followed by questions and answers between the audience and the speaker, enriching furthermore the two topics which were skillfully handled by Dr. Kevork Yazedjian, thanks to his flowing wealth of knowledge and captivating way of presentation.
