"Where is your Christian God?" Documenting An Armenian Genocide Survivor, Alma Sakaian:



"Where is your Christian God?" Alma Sakaian, a fifteen year old Protestant Christian Armenian, recalled hearing this question mockingly asked by perpetrators of heinous crimes upon her caravan. Alma was among the one hundred and fifty survivors of a sixty-five day forced march that witnessed over 17,850 casualties. I have documented two generations of Alma's immediate and extended family life, as well as recreating her caravan ordeal. The research includes hundred rare pictures, newspaper and magazine articles dating 1873 – 1924. In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide I am providing links to the research for those interested in this important historical era and personal story.
