Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    The three-volume work about the testimonies of the survivors of the
    Armenian Genocide is ready

    10:00, 19 November, 2012

    YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 19, ARMENPRESS. Toward the 100th anniversary of the
    Armenian Genocide the National Archive of Armenia continues publishing
    important and unique documents and introducing them to the public. The
    book "the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire: the Testimonies of
    the Survivors. Archival Documents" is already finished. The
    testimonies of the survivors dated to 1916 are enclosed in the book.

    In a conversation with "Armenpress" the head of the National Archive
    of Armenia Amatuni Virabyan stated that there was a program organized
    by the Russian Army and held in 1916-1917, which was aimed to the
    discovery of the events in the Western Armenia in 1915. Amatuni
    Virabyan stated: "During the liberation of the Armenian territories by
    the Armenian voluntary units and the Russian Army they have seen that
    almost no Armenian was left in that territories or a very small number
    of people remained there. And a row of intellectuals developed a
    questionnaire to discover the number of the population, income and
    residents of a row of villages before the aforementioned events: the
    number of the servicemen, their future fate, the date of the beginning
    of the massacre and deportation, the identities of the participants of
    those events, the survivors and the state of a village by 1916."

    As the Head of the National Archive of Armenia stated these are
    authentic testimonies, as they have been taken only a year after the
    tragic events, when the memory f the people was fresh and they could
    recall the names of those criminals. The testimonies spread light on
    those events and it becomes clear that among the executors there have
    been Turkish officials, policemen, heads of provinces and states,
    Hamidian units, the Kurdish mobs, the Circassians.

    The head of the National Archive of Armenia Amatuni Virabyan
    emphasized the legal significance of those documents, as at the time
    of their record there had not been any conversation about the Armenian
    Genocide.

        'MY MOTHER'S VOICE': A DAUGHTER'S ACCOUNT OF HER MOTHER'S SURVIVAL
        by Lilly Torosyan

        http://www.armenianweekly.com/2013/0...hers-survival/
        April 3, 2013

        Dr. Kay Mouradian's novel, My Mother's Voice, tells the biographical
        story of the writer's mother, Flora Munushian, and her journey of
        surviving the genocide as a young teenage girl.

        Dr. Kay Mouradian's novel, My Mother's Voice, tells the biographical
        story of the writer's mother, Flora Munushian, and her journey of
        surviving the genocide as a young teenage girl.

        The idea for the novel came decades later, when Munushian became ill,
        impelling Mouradian to write about her mother's past. "Often I felt
        like a detective as I tried to piece together scenes that became
        pieces of a puzzle. Researching and writing my mother's story opened
        avenues of discovery and knowledge that have enriched my understanding
        of life," she tells the Weekly in an interview.

        Mouradian is professor emerita at the Los Angeles Community Colleges.

        After retiring, she developed yoga and acupunc–ture strategies to
        improve her health, and after her mother's illness, pursued writing
        as another avenue of healing.

        "There are some in the literary community who say, 'If you want to
        know the facts, read a newspaper, but if you want to know the truth,
        read a novel.' That statement resonated in my brain. Feeling a deep
        responsibility to history, I decided to write my mother's story as
        a novel to paint the truth of 1915 on a larger canvas," she said.

        All of the characters in My Mother's Voice are either real or based
        on real people. A couple of characters were created to reflect on the
        truth of the time, Mouradian explained. "For example, Constantinople
        was the center for white slavery in the early 1900â[email protected]”s. I needed to
        develop the possibility that Armenian girls could have been snared
        into harlotry. Can I be specific to whom it happened? No, but the
        threat was there," she said, adding that "there is an element of
        truth in every scene in my mother's story."

        A film based on the novel premiered at the Pomegranate Film Festival
        in Toronto last October, and received Honorable Mention for Best
        Documentary. It was later screened as an official selection at the
        ARPA film festival in Los Angeles. My Mother's Voice serves as a
        sequel to A Gift in the Sunlight, Mouradian's first novel, also about
        her mother's life.

        To purchase the novel, My Mother's Voice, visit Mouradian's website
        at www.kaymouradian.com. It is also available through Amazon.
