First Armenian Slave Girl Rescued February 1920

Many of the young Armenian girls that survived the 1915-1916 deportation caravans were abducted and sold into domestic servitude to wealthy Arabs. The story of Vartanousch is briefly described in the American news reports of the times. However, the story of Alma Sakaian, which I have researched for several years will be told in a screen play and novel titled "From Aghin." I am most interested to be contacted by individuals that believe a movie and a novel will foster awareness of the untold stories of this era. Please link to a collection of photos that document Alma's sixty-five day Caravan, abduction by slave traders and rescue by her uncle
