It has been roughly two weeks since I returned from my research travels on the East Coast New York and in France. I will be posting some exciting information based on my interviews with repatriates in Lyon, Paris, and Rhode Island, including additional photographs from their albums. I took new video footage of places in France to use for future presentations on the post-WWII repatriation. While in New York, I had the pleasure of meeting V. Rev. Fr. M. Daniel Findikyan at the Zohrab Information Center where I briefly studied newspaper articles from the late 1940s.
Finally, I finished a painting that I had started earlier in the summer. It is inspired by several images from repatriate photographs along with imagery of the Virgin Mary found among medieval Armenian sculptural reliefs and manuscript miniatures. Before the end of the year, I expect to post all the interviews that I have videotaped to date and much of the repatriate photographs that I have scanned.
