TUESDAY NOVEMBER 16 in NJ - On Tuesday, November 14, the North Jersey community will have a chance to hear Dr. Khatchig Mouradian and Houry Panian Boyamian present Goodbye, Antoura: A Memoir of the Armenian Genocide.
Karnig Panian’s memoir recounts his life in an orphanage run by the Turkish government in Lebanon. The orphanage was another project of the Armenian Genocide: its administrators, some benign and some cruel, sought to transform the children into Turks by changing their Armenian names, forcing them to speak Turkish, and erasing their history.
Karnig was among nearly 1,000 Armenian and 400 Kurdish children who were found by aid workers at the end of the war. They had been abandoned by the Turkish administrators and left to survive at the orphanage without adult care. He grew up to become an educator and vice-principal at Djemaran, the Armenian Lyceum, based in Beirut, Lebanon.
His memoir, Goodbye, Antoura, offers the extraordinary story of what he endured in those years—as his people were deported from the village of Gurin. He paints a painfully rich and detailed picture of the lives and agency of Armenian orphans during the darkest days of World War I and how humanity, once denied, can be reclaimed.
The forward is written by Dr. Vartan Gregorian. The introduction is written by Dr. Keith Watenpaugh. He is the director of human rights studies at UC Davis. He holds a PhD in Moddern Middle Eastern History.
Houry Panian Boyamian is the author’s daughter and principal of St. Stephen’s Armenian Elementary School in Watertown.
Dr. Khatchig Mouradian is the Nikit and Eleanora Ordjanian Visiting Professor at Columbia University and the coordinator of the Place and Memory Project at the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights at Rutgers University. He also serves as adjunct professor in the Philosophy Department at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. He holds a PhD in history from the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University and a graduate certificate in Conflict Resolution from UMass Boston.
