SIRANOOSH, MY CHILD
By Siranoosh Tavookjian, Translated by Bob Der Mugrdechian
Siranoosh Lazian Tavookjian's journey from her native Tokat to Fresno, California is a remarkable story of survival and the will to live. The objective of the Turkish government to eliminate the Armenians from Asia Minor was accomplished with the utmost cruelty and savagery. Siranoosh was one of the few who survived the massacres and fortunate enough to arrive in the United States after years of privation and struggle. This story affirms the love of an Armenian mother for her child and the faith which she had for the Armenian Apostolic Church. Narrated in Armenian by Siranoosh Tavookjian and translated to English by Bob Der Mugrdechian.
