TORRANCE—The Armenian Youth Federation’s South Bay “Potorig” Chapter will host its second annual Armenian Genocide Museum on Thursday April 12th at 5:30 PM at the South Bay Armenian Center, 2222 Lomita Blvd. Lomita, CA 90717.

In its inaugural year last year the event showcased important information about the Armenian Genocide and exposed to the non-Armenian South Bay community the atrocities of the Genocide.

The museum features exhibits about the Genocide, modern activism and Armenians in the media, and Armenian Genocide Monuments around the world. As a centerpiece, a scale model of the Armenian Genocide Monument in Armenia, Dzidzernagapert is also featured. The AYF Potorig Chapter hopes to attract a diverse crowd from the South Bay community and beyond, including students from local high schools and organizations.
The night will also include a special screening of the widely acclaimed documentary “Grandma’s Tattoos” at 8:30 p.m. The film follows Suzanne Khardalian’s journey to find the truth behind the mysterious tattoos that covered her late grandmother’s face and hands.

The AYF South Bay Potorig Chapter invites the community to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
