Dr. Mark M. Kosker, is a well-known chiropractor and Naturopath, practicing full time since 1990 in Toluca Lake.
Dr. Kosker was born and baptized at St. Gregory Church as Krikor Lusoveric in Kayseri. He was one of eight children from a father who survived as an orphan as a result of the Ottoman Turkish Massacre in Sivas. He grew up listening to sad, unjustified atrocities to innocent Armenians during the Genocide.
We were honored to host distinguished scholars led by Dr. Uğur Ümit Üngör ( Utrecht University ) ( Genocide and mass violence ) , as well as Dr. Mehmet Polatel ( confiscation , destruction and ‘abandoned properties ‘ ) and PhD candidate Ayşenur Korkmaz ( thesis : Armenian Genocide survivors in their new homelands in the Caucasus ) . It was a very engaging and productive discussion with all three currently visiting scholars at the USC Shoah Institute and we will certainly invite them back to lecture at our larger format events .
It was a wonderful lecture by Dr. Ümit Kurt ; we thank everyone who made the time and joined us on a Sunday evening and we especially thank Prof . Kurt for his thorough scholarship and his academic attention to the crucial sub field of perpetrators , their motivations and biographies .(Edvin E. Minassian, Esq)
We truly enjoyed the wonderful play by Director / Playwright Aram Kouyoumdjian . Strongly recommend it to anyone who has not seen it. It was also very nice to meet the talented actors who performed superbly and present them flowers on behalf of the OIA .
