The Odyssey of an Armenian Revolutionary Couple: How They Survived theFirst Genocide of the 20TH Century
The Odyssey of an Armenian Revolutionary Couple: How They Survived the First Genocide of the 20th Century, is a historical biography of my father, Minas and mother, Aghavni Dersarkissian. From their translated autobiographies in Armenian, we follow Minas’ life leaving home at age 12 to become a priest, meanwhile learning of his family’s slaughter by the Turks; serving as a Turkish officer in WW-I, and then fighting against the Turks as guerrilla to save his people, the Armenians; while Minas in exile, Aghavni escapes with her life to become refugee, and how they find each other and face hardships anew.
