He will present the photographic and the video materials regarding the American Near East Relief Organization’s orphan care activity in Greece, Cyprus, Lebanon, Jerusalem, Egypt and Armenia after the Armenian Genocide which he had conducted on his own initiative. After the meticulous studies the author has revealed interesting episodes about the turkifying policy of the Armenian orphans in Antura’s state orphanage established by the Young Turks. It is worth to mention the story of the hand-crafted carpet made by the Armenian orphans in Ghazir which was donated to the US President.
