Javakhk 1915-23

Our Program

Let’s remember, in order not to get forgotten

Being unaware of own past can risk not only the present, but also the future.

The current problems of Javakhk and the powers standing behind them have so many paralleles with situation in our region in 1915, 18 or 1920, that we without wishing that have to turn back to our past to see how well we know it to protect our present and our future.

And despite that in our elder generation there are so many grandfathers and grandmotherss, who have told us so much about the “Gakhth”, we have to confess that we have done too little to write, organize and publish material about self-defense and escape of Javakhk.

One reason of this inaction could be the wish not remember the sad past. Or, probably, the reason was that nobody “from above” encouraged us to do that, and our own political understanding was not broad enough to see importance of our cause? Another possible reason was that in “Soviet country” the secure and peaceful life of Javakhk was not connected with knowledge of history:

In any case, regardless of the reason of our passivity, we have very few collections of historical documents, publications of academic research, other materials and media to deliver information about events of 1915-23 in Javakhk to Armenian, Russian, European or American researchers or general audience.

Javakhk 1915-23 Project

Based on this we decided to start the project Javakhk 1915-23 the aims of which are:
