ANDRANIK OZANYAN 150



Andranik
Armenian national liberation figure, military leader Andranik Ozanyan ( Andranik Commander) was born in Shapin-Garahisar (Sebinkarahisar ) on February 25, 1865. Having obtained the fame of national hero, Andranik had a special role in the Armenian liberation movement at the end of 19th and in the beginning of 20th centuries. Andranik became a member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun party in 1892 and participated in the defense of the motherland with other fedayins.

He played an important role in organizing the Armenian voluntary movement during World War I.

Leading hard defensive fights in Erzurum in 1918, Andranik rescued Armenians escaping from Turkish massacres.

Andranik Ozanyan has inestimable contribution to the national liberation movement, as well as in saving Armenian migrants who lost their homeland as a result of “Mets Eghern” from impending death and organizing orphans' collection works.

Andranik Ozanyan died in Chico (The USA) in August 31, 1927.
