CALL FROM HOME: Armenia & Karabagh - My Journal
by Carol Ann Najarian
The story of a woman doctor who leaves her comfortable Boston suburb to bring disaster relief to the people of Armenia and Karabagh after the devastating earthquake of December 7, 1988. With each of her 25 trips to the region over 10 years, Dr. Najarian was drawn deeper into the lives of the people she met - the doctors who worked under horrendous conditions, the generous families who invited her to share what little they had, and the patients she treated. Her journals describe the courage, dignity, and humor with with Armenians lived and survived. Their poignant stories provide an intimate look at these extraordinary people of the Caucasus.
