Glendale's young remember atrocity

Gary Moskowitz

For Narek Kassabian, this week will be about coming together while at

the same time celebrating cultural uniqueness.

Kassabian and her Armenian Club students at Hoover High School

will read poetry and perform traditional Armenian dances for the

student body Monday during an assembly she hopes brings students

together. The assembly is not open to the public.

Kassabian's students are among many local and area residents this

week celebrating Armenian culture and commemorating the 88th

anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

"The real message here is that we are all the same," Kassabian

said. "We can't let culture and language get in the way of coming

together as people."

The following is a list of events and activities that celebrate

Armenian culture and will commemorate the Armenian Genocide. All

except the assembly are free and open to the public.
