In about a month we hope to activate a Kickstarter Project titled "From Aghin" to support the publishing of an Illustrated Novel of the same name. The attached pictures are related to the story entails.... Alma Sakaian, was a fifteen-year old survivor of one of the brutal Armenian deportations in World War I. Together with hundreds of Armenians neighbors and family she was force marched out of her village of Aghin, located on the northern Euphrates River in Turkey. After a 65 day ordeal Alma was among the 150 living of a caravan that grew to number 18,000 men, women and children. "From Aghin" will recreate the events her ordeal and the attempt to rescue her by her uncle, Samuel Sakaian.
