Community Events - Calendar of Upcoming Events

Armenian Exhibition Opening Reception.
April 23, 2015 5:00-7:00PM, Onondaga Historical Museum

Please join us for the opening of the exhibition 'With Open Arms: The Story of the Armenians in Syracuse.' Syracuse has a long historical legacy with the people of Armenia.  There is a vibrant community here today of Armenian-Americans, some recent arrivals and others whose ancestors came to Central New York in the late 19th century. This year, 2015, holds special significance for that community because of the atrocities Armenian suffered in their homeland, inside the Ottoman Empire, 100 years ago during World War I.  Those hardships led many Armenian families to relocate to Syracuse, where there already was a small but vigorous Armenian community.  After World War I, Syracuse Armenians were also active participants with international efforts to establish an independent Armenian nation.  That would not become reality, however, until 1992 with the breakup of the Soviet Union.
