If you have a family member who can tell the story of a mother or father (or any relative) who was a victim of the Ottoman Turks during the Armenian Genocide, please help them share their testimony in the US Congressional Record. Read and share the following newspaper article with your Armenian family and friends:

This weekend, I read David Kherdian’s award-winning book about his mother, Veron Dumehjian Kherdian. The book, The Road From Home: A True Story of Courage, Survival and Hope, is beautifully written and very inspirational. It gives us a window into Armenian life before, during and after the Armenian Genocide. I highly recommend it. (I’ve provided a link to the book on Amazon.com, but you may be able to find it in your library. It’s available as an audio book and for Kindle, too.
