WATERTOWN–Arshavir Shiragian–who was a member of the group that in the 1920’s tracked and punished the perpetrators of the Armenian genocide–was filmed in 1965 in New York talking about the publication of his memoirs. You can now watch the clip on Hairenik Online TV by visiting www.hairenikradio.com or www.haireniktv.com.
Also available on Hairenik Online TV are two speeches during the celebration of the 115th anniversary of the ARF. One speech was given by ARF Bureau member Viken A. Hovsepian on December 18–2005 in Los Angeles–CA and the other by ARF Bureau Chairman Hrant Markarian on December 22–2005 in Yerevan.
Hairenik Online also has footage of the destruction of the historic Armenian cemetery in Julfa–Nakhichevan. The clip showing Azeri soldiers destroying the historic Armenian cemetery in Nakhichevan received over 21,000 hits between December 18–2005 and January 2–2006. The issue was raised in the US Congress and officials of the US State Department contacted the ANCA office in Washington to discuss it. Let us all continue distributing the link to as many Armenia’s and non-Armenia’s and make an effort to rescue whatever remains from that historic Armenian site.
