Page created by Niamh Foster.

In 2003 at Naregatsi Art Institute (NAI) at the Cooper Union, New York, for the remembrance of the 88th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Hagop H. Asadourian (1903-2003) was the honoured guest to talk as a survivor of the Armenian Genocide. The event was to commemorate the genocide through the spirit of art and cultural rebirth. The following clip is  from the DVD “Truth,” which documented the event.

He was deported from his village in eastern Turkey in 1918 but he found refuge in an orphanage in Aleppo, Syria. In 1920, Mr. Asadourian moved to the U.S.A where he became a businessman and wrote his novel about his childhood experiences called “The Grandchildren of Hovagim.”
