Worldwide Reading in Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, Tuesday, April 21
Led by the International Literature Festival Berlin and the Lepsiushaus Potsdam, there will be a worldwide reading from “The Book of Whispers” by Varujan Vosganian to commemorate the centenary of the Armenian Genocide. In addition to remembering the victims of this horrible event, we also want to raise awareness of the fact that some countries still don’t recognise the genocide, most notably Turkey.
More than 300 authors from more than 65 countries are supporting this initiative, among them Nobel Prize for Literature laureates Mario Vargas Llosa, Herta Müller, Elfriede Jelinek, Orhan Pamuk, Günter Grass and John M. Coetzee.
