It may well be that our means are fairly limited and our possibilities restricted when it comes to applying pressure on our government. But is this a reason to do nothing? Despair is nor an answer. Neither is resignation. Resignation only leads to indifference, which is not merely a sin but a punishment.
— Elie Wiesel
I am an Armenian and the direct descendent of Armenian Genocide victims. Since the Turkish Government continues to deny the Armenian Genocide, I am seeking as many family histories as we can collect through this site to share with the world. This effort will be part of a larger research book and documentary project.
We hope to find Armenian Genocide survivors anywhere in the world who can provide their personal testimony on audio, video or in writing. We are also seeking the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews of survivors who may have their family members testimony in some form. Photos of loved ones with names, dates and locations (when possible) are very important for this effort.
If you would like to share your time, ideas, referrals to family members or friends, or any information helpful for this research project, please let us know. Since this project will be multi-lingual, if you wish to serve as a translator, we need your skills, so please contact us! Leave a comment on this blog or send an email to:
Our families and the world must never forget the memories of all the innocent children, women and men who died during one of the world’s darkest periods in history.
