PORTRAIT OF A SURVIVOR

Regular price $ 14.95 $ 0.00

By Florence M. Soghoian

"What is it about Shnorhig (my mother) and Vartouhi (my grandmother) that enabled them to endure the atrocities of the Armenian Genocide?" These two ordinary women leading extraordinary lives  turned their horrendous decade of pain (1915-1924) into a lifetime of helping fellow human beings to live better lives. This book chronicles the personal journey of mother and daughter beginning before the Genocide and continuing as they miraculously live through the this time when two million Armenian were brutally slaughtered by the Ottoman Turkish government or forced on an agonizing death march through the desolate Syrian desert.
