Sean poised for finish and place in history books

first_imgLinkedin Print Advertisement WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsSean poised for finish and place in history booksBy admin – April 29, 2010 718 Facebookcenter_img Twitter Previous articleGardai won’t be corrupted – NoonanNext articleSpain plays host to repeat of ‘05 and ‘06 as Munster battle Biarritz admin Email SPEAKING to the Limerick Post and with just 180 miles to the finish of his epic solo rowing voyage across the Atlantic, Limerick’s Sean McGowan is poised to be the first Irish man to complete the mammoth task of rowing the ocean.Emotional, but still able to draw on the huge support that has followed him, Sean told this journalist just what it was like as land and the finish line loomed. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It has been much harder than I thought, my body is wrecked and mentally I am reaching the end. I’ve been away from my family for too long but I have come so far, I have to keep going. Big waves crash over the boat in my face constantly and it is like a washing machine here at times.”The “highlight” of each day comes when his wife, Lorraine, sends messages of support to his satellite phone from those that know and even those that don’t know Sean. “Lorraine would type out the messages and send them by text to the sat phone and when I was feeling low I could read them in the morning and the evening. People I don’t even know were sending messages and my brothers have been great keeping the campaign going to raise money for  the charity. That has kept me going.” Battling a swirling current that has kept him perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Sean notes the milestones that he must reach in order to make history. “The magic number is 59 degrees 26 minutes and when I hit that I will have crossed the Atlantic Ocean and after that it’s like threading a needle to the finish line as i have a tricky route in to follow. I am aiming to be finished by Monday but this Thursday I’m hoping to cross that magic line and make history.|. But his finish is not without danger and Sean is only too well aware of that. “Two boats have already had to be rescued after running aground on reefs. I’m still in the middle of the ocean and can see nothing but water. I’m not there yet.”With over 115 days rowing at sea, Sean will have one day to ready his boat to be shipped home when he finishes in English Harbour in Antigua. “Tuesday and Wednesday, all going well, I will get the boat ready to ship home and then I hope to land in Shannon next Friday. I will miss my daughter’s confirmation, but Lorraine will be there to support her. This has been so hard for them and I really can’t wait to get home to them”.Earlier this week, Mayor Kevin Kiely told  a meeting of the city council that everyone in the city is rooting for Sean McGowan and that he will be inviting him into City Hall to a special reception when he returns to Limerick.Click the tracking image on the right to follow the final stages of Sean’s epic journey and click his profile picture on top to send messages of support to his facebook page. last_img read more

Shoah to add Armenian genocide witness videos

first_imgThough the USC Shoah Foundation Institute is already renowned for its collection of testimonies from Holocaust survivors, it now hopes to broaden its archives to include the Armenian genocide.More than 400 testimonies from survivors of the Armenian genocide recorded on 16mm film by Armenian-American filmmaker Dr. J. Michael Hagopian will soon be added to the foundation’s nearly 52,000 testimonies from around the globe.An estimated 1.5 million people died between 1915 and 1923 in the Armenian genocide.Hagopian met survivors of the massacre while traveling internationally to film documentaries and interviewed them to preserve their stories.The Shoah Foundation Institute hopes adding the Armenian genocide to its archives will be the first step in expanding its collection to include all genocides. Researchers are also working to track down testimonies from genocides in Rwanda and Cambodia.Stephen Smith, executive director of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, said discovering similarities across genocide records allows scholars to find their origin.“Having testimonies from different genocides is not about comparing human suffering, because that’s not possible, but about comparing the causes and the consequences [of the genocide],” Smith said. “It’s in understanding the causes and consequences that we understand how we might prevent genocide in the future and also how it affects the individuals who have been through it.”The diversity in the survivors Hagopian interviewed only makes the collection more interesting, Smith said. The tapes include interviews from survivors not only in Armenia, but also from locations as far flung as North America, the Mediterranean basin and India.“We are getting both a very personal and a very broadly based geographical understanding of what those individuals went through,” Smith said.Smith said the personal nature of these interviews also makes Hagopian’s collection stand out.“Most of what we have on the Armenian genocide so far is documentary information, but these testimonies will lend a tremendously valuable insight into understanding personally what these individuals went through,” Smith said.Members of the Armenian community also see the addition of these testimonies as a key step in the preservation of the history of this genocide.Jerry Papazian, a board member of the USC Institute of Armenian Studies’ Leadership Council and chairman of the Armenian Film Foundation, has even loftier goals for the institute.“The goal is to start collecting other collections of Armenian genocide victim’s accounts to add to the collection and make this the largest collection of Armenian genocide testimonies side by side with those of the Holocaust survivors,” Papazian said.Making the stories of these survivors available to the public is also a key motivator behind the project, Papazian said.“Right now, when the interviews are sitting in a vault someplace, they are not available,” Papazian said. “We were originally able to salvage their testimonies on film, but now with better technology available, why not share them with more people?”Combining records of the two genocides could also make the archive a much better learning tool, supporters said.“We hope by learning about genocide through the archive at USC, our students will be better off as citizens of the world to understand genocide and address it,” Smith said. “Genocide is not something we want or anticipate, but it is a fact of human existence and something that we want to understand better.”The USC Institute of Armenian Studies’ Leadership Council will hold a fundraising gala April 15 to raise money to digitize the testimonies. The Shoah Foundation Institute expects to complete the project by the end of 2012.last_img read more
