This program will be the second in a series to mark the 15-year commemoration of the final destruction by Azerbaijan of the khachkars of Jugha (Old Julfa) in Nakhichevan. This event will focus on the khachkar as it is used by diaspora communities, their representation in the work of Armenian artist Vardges Sureniants’ (1860-1921), and what can be learned from inscriptions on khachkars, including those that once stood in Jugha.
