A rare photograph of several '47 American Armenian repatriates during their brief stop in Naples, Italy, as they traveled on the passenger liner, the Rossiya, to Soviet Armenia. I found the photograph in my father's album. I am not sure who took it, but a few of the people are recognizable. Paul and Massey Antaramian are standing in the background of the group of repatriates, and I believe that Tom Mooradian is at the far right. The second caravan of American-Armenians who also had to go through Naples experienced a different scenario while en route to Soviet Armenia. Read more about their story in my on-line article, see Written Works page.
