MY MEMOIRS (1914-1921) GURGHEN SARKISSIAN / ԻՄ ՅՈՒՇԵՐԸ (1914-1921) ԳՈՒՐԳԷՆ ՍԱՐԳԻՍԵԱՆ (ԹՂԹԱԿԱԶՄ)
By Gurghen Sarkissian, Translated and Annotated by Vartan Matiossian
This volume of recollections is not the first to memorialize episodes of Armenian history in the early twentieth century, However, its peculiar feature is that Gurghen Sarkissisn's personal experience of wholehearted dedication conveys a wealth of names and events. Thus, he makes us revive, once again, the crucial days of the "suffering homeland, oppressed homeland" - in the verses of a celebrated contemporary author, the poet Hovhannes Tumanian - that were the share of our people in the past century.
