A vigil was held Tuesday night at Fresno State to remember the victims of the Armenian Genocide.
Tuesday marked the 98th anniversary of the genocide, where more than one million Armenians lost their lives.
Marine Vardanyan said, "You can't forget your history especially as Armenians, with so many people denying that the genocide happened, its our goal to teach people that this happened, to learn about the history and to preserve it and teach their children."
The documentary "The River Running Red was also shown at Fresno State. The film includes eyewitness accounts of the genocide and recollections from survivors.
