What People Say
"The Zoryan Institute is a beacon of light in a world that is often shadowed by darkness. Not only has the Zoryan Institute done highly significant work vis-a-vis
the Armenian Genocide but it has also taken a lead in preparing young scholars to teach and conduct research into the broader area of genocide studies."
Samuel Totten, Professor Emeritus, University of Arkansas Fayetteville
"The Zoryan Institute was founded at a time when the Diaspora recognized it needed tools by which to begin to document, study and understand itself.
From its extensive oral history and genocide documentation work to its groundbreaking Diaspora studies, the Zoryan Institute was a pioneer."
Vartan Oskanian, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Armenia
"Zoryan was one of the principal Diaspora institutions to give scholarly attention to Soviet Armenia, then separated from much of the Armenian world ideologically and
politically. It brought cool, detached consideration of the Armenian genocide. Zoryan remains a valued ally of those who look seriously and dispassionately at the major issues
confronting Armenians in the troubled twenty-first century. If this was the only activity in which Zoryan was involved, it would have contributed a great deal. Its mission and
its work is broader and more inclusive, and in that sense, it is truly an 'international center' serving all of humanity."
Ronald Grigor Suny, Professor Emeritus of Political Science & History, University of Chicago
