End of the Year 2013 Research in Armenia

29 December 2013


It has been seven days since I returned from Armenia. The best things of a wonderful trip were my time with Satenik Faramazyan and Tigran Paskevichyan of Versus Studios. The filmmakers are working on a three-part documentary of the post-WWII repatriation. The first one has been shown internationally and the second one is in the production phase. In fact, it was the second part to their series that brought us together, which was our mutual interest in those repatriates who were sent into exile. While their interest is broader in scope, mine is concerned with a few individuals who are known to me by my family or those who I have interviewed. Together with Satenik, I was warmly greeted at the National Archives of Armenia first by Sonya Mirzoyan, Vice Director, and later Marine Martirosyan, her associate. Once the files we needed were found, I sat with Tigran's daughter, Nane, who read the Armenian and Russian text to me. From this I was able to determine what files I wanted to have copied. This was a rare day indeed, since many of these files were recently opened to the public. However, there are many more that are still being kept sealed. Even the files that I requested for copying require scrutiny on multiple levels prior to its release. Much of what I learned will be shared in future presentations. Other exciting news include my meeting with Gagik Ghazare, Director of NPAK, the Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art; the discovery of rare repatriate letters in the Archives; and getting a private tour from the current resident of my grandfather's home, "the American's House," on Vertanes Papazian Street, near Monument. I also enjoyed my tea with Satenik and Tigran at Natura Gold Tea House at 11 Abovyan Street, a superb place!


As I now prepare for the goals I have set for 2014, I wish all a Happy New Year and I hope to share much more by the way of travel photographs, journal entries, and more importantly photographs and captions of those whom I have interviewed.
