Karen Maria Petersen - the sentinel of “Emaus” orphanage



19.07.2019

Many missionaries, who eye witnessed the Armenian Genocide, dedicated their lives to rescue Armenian children and women. Among them were a number of Scandinavian Missionary devotees, particularly the Danish Evangelical Organization's "Women's Mission Workers" (Kvindelige Missions Arbejdere, KMA), established in 1900 in Copenhagen. The slogan of the organization entirely characterizes the purpose of its activities, which is; “Women who work for the sake of women”. The main source of inspiration for the creation of the "Women's Mission Workers" organization was the Swedish KMA, which was founded in 1894, as well as the modern movements of the Danish revival Internal Mission and so called International Protestant, which aimed to present to the world the Bible and the light. An important impetus for the formation of the organization was also the series of Hamidian Massacres in the Ottoman Empire during the first half of the 1890's.

Initially, the Danish Mission was concentrated on the dissemination of the information on the condition of the Armenian people, who suffered from the massacres, as well as, Armenian orphans under American and German care in Bitlis, Van, Mush, Kharberd and Constantinople. However, very soon they realized that they need to establish their own orphanage and missionaries, who will work there. Thus, in 1902-1903 the Danish “Emaus” orphanage was established in the Mezre village of the Kharberd province.

Armenians Burnt Alive in One of Mush Villages



28.06.2019

The photo depicts the skulls and bones of the Armenians killed by the Turkish soldiers. The photo was taken in the ruins of Akhjan village, Mush province, where hundreds of men, women and children of the village had been gathered and burnt alive.

During the Genocide the perpetrators developed more sophisticated means of swiftly mass massacring. The Turks often closed the doors and windows of a house, threw their victims from the chimney into the house, until the house was filled and pouring oil on the victims burnt them alive. Thousands of people were killed in this way.

This photo was taken by Frank Danielian in 1915-1917, when he was serving in the fourth voluntary regiment of the American-Armenians in the Caucasus and was able to take photos in many cities of Western Armenia. Those photos testify the dreadful cruelty of the Turks and Kurds towards the Armenians.

3. The paper discusses the issue of the involvement of masses and their role in the appropriation and confiscation of the Armenian cultural values.

Keywords: cultural value, national property, Young Turks government, governmental decisions, destruction, confiscation, appropriation, state policy, genocide, intent.

17 years old Lutfieh Bilemjian from Aintab is in the photo. She was deported to Der el-Zor along with her parents and two brothers. Lutfieh's mother died while protecting her children. Her father and younger brother were killed, and the older brother disappeared. Lutfieh became a property of a Chechen. The latter sold her to a Kurd, and he handed the girl to Mahmoud pasha, a wealthy Turk, in whose house she stayed for 11 years.

Many Armenian women were subjected to inhuman sexual violence, and sold into slavery during the Armenian Genocide. Turks, Kurds and Arabs often kidnapped beautiful Armenian women and girls along the deportation road during night stops. Women, who had been forcibly converted to Islam, were given new Turkish names. Sometimes, according to their local tribal customs, tattoos were made on their faces and bodies. In Near East and Islamic countries tattoos were widely used as a talisman and protection: they often were in shape of dots or crosses, indicating tribal and religious belonging of women and changes occurred in their lives.

“In the monument I see the open wound of Armenians, because the cruelty of the genocide and the Turkish denial contribute in keeping the wound of Armenian souls unhealed”, the AGMI Director has mentioned. “Every nation has a memory that unites its population. Since the past century for Armenians it has been the 1915 Genocide Memory. Victims and lost homeland (Eastern Armenia) feed the call for justice. I think it is clear why, until today, Turkey continues to deny the fact of the genocide. On the other side there is a myth which connects all the Turks, in particular, that the Turkish Republic was reborn from the war that the Ottomans had lost. They want to make sure that their Turkish legend does not be "smeared" by the Genocide.

Massacres and Attacks against the Armenian Population in Sumgait on February 27-29, 1988



28.02.2019

The response of Azerbaijan to the democratic will of the Armenian population in Karabagh was initially in Sumgait, and later in other settlements of the republic in the form of murders and violence often referred as genocidal acts. The purpose of mass killings and violence in Sumgait intended to terrify the Armenians with the prospect of new bloody actions and force them to abandon their struggle for Karabagh. Planned violence, slaughter and forced deportation in Sumgait were particularly cruel. All the killings without exception were done with unprecedented cruelty and in front of many citizens of Sumgait. Evidence and testimonies of these horrific events help us to build on a whole chain of fraudulent images.

There were hundreds of wounded, and the Armenian population of nearly 17,000 of the city was displaced. More than 200 Armenian homes were robbed and destroyed.

Turkification Methods in the Ottoman Empire State Orphanages


05.02.2019

During the Armenian Genocide a list of sanctions and violence was put in action against the Armenian orphans in the Turkish orphanages. The conversion and renaming were carried out by forcible means. The first mandatory condition to enter the orphanage was renaming. Nearly all the orphans speak about this in their memoirs.
Garnik Banyan, who spent about three and a half year at the orphanage in Antura, tells in his memoirs, that in the orphanage he was given the number 549 and named Ahmed. Melkon Petrosyan, another inmate of the same orphanage was given the name Nejip and the number 8. Harutyun Alboyajyan was renamed twice. The first time it was in Dera, later in Antura, where he was named Shyuqru and given the number 534. Khoren Gelchyan was transferred from Aleppo to the Harbiye military central school in Constantinople. Here copper seals with their new Turkish names were distributed to the children. He got the seal named Ali Oghlu Islam, which should always have been hanged on the neck by the order of the directorate. Grigoryan from the orphanage of Mardin, who got the name Aishe, tells about the renaming ceremony: “Passports were made for all of us, where the father names of all of us were mentioned Abdulah, and the names of mothers - Salihè”. Ervand Postaljyan, who carried the name Mehmed Oghli and spent 6 years in the orphanage of Adana mentions in his memoirs: “In order not to forget our names, all of us carried our names written on the papers.”

Mary Anna Østergaard, Newly Discovered Materials at the AGMI Foundation


12.01.2019

The collection of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Foundation has recently been replenished with the new exclusive materials donated by a Greek-Armenian Sargis Keshishoghlu. The donated units (photos, personal books and items) had belonged to the Danish missionary Mary Anna Østergaard, who had been active in Greece since 1927, greatly contributing to the resettlement and organization of care for the Armenian refugees after the Armenian Genocide. It is hard to say the exact number of the Armenian refugees in Greece because of the lack of statistical data and the constant move of the refugees. The vast majority of the refugees were children. According to the book “The History of Greek-Armenian Community” by Petros Kokkinos, 17 520 orphans were found in Greece, placed in the following orphanages: Utopia, 7 500 orphans, Lutraki 3 300, Corfu 2 720, Oropos 2 000, Zappeion 2 000. Later their number reached 20 000.

Unfortunately, no much information is available about M. A. Østergaard. It is known, that she was born in 1897 in Denmark. In 1927, she was established in Athens. She had been the director of the Danish Care Center that operated until 1961. After the closure of the center, Mary Anna Østergaard continued her mission in Greece.
