Javakhk 1915-23

This site is devoted to the events that took place in Javakhk in 1915-23. During those years Javakhk passed through all the steps of the fate of the Armenian people: tragedy of the Armenian Genocide, self-defense against Turkish occupation, escape, loses and rebirth.

Study of this history is important not only for detailed understanding of the aspects of the Armenian Genocide, but also for correct estimating of the current situations and future perspectives for Javakhk and Armenia.

We hope our site will help you to do that.
