Let me take you to the Armenian community in Buenos Aires…
In the morning of the 10th day of our cruise, the excitement to cross the equator line was palpable.
Let’s take a look at what my first day in Buenos Aires was like.
I wanted to take Professor Levon Marashlian’s Armenian History class at Glendale Community College, and this year I was finally able to sign up for the fall semester class.
“For the past five years I have been traveling and writing about Armenian communities in different cities around the world. The conference in Dallas was a good opportunity for me to find out about the Armenians there.”
“‘June-Gloom’ is a term I learned early on when we settled in the Los Angeles area where the month of June is, all too often, gloomy and cold.”
“The film begins with a black and white preface, in 1921 Berlin: there, in broad daylight, Soghomon Tehlirian assassinates Talaat Pasha, one of the architects of the Armenian Genocide.”
“Armenians united, will never be divided!” and “Not one inch!”. These were some of the chants I heard at the peaceful rally I attended on Friday, April 8
In 2015, I had the opportunity to visit various Armenian communities throughout Europe followed by my visit to the motherland.
This year the annual Arpa International Film Festival celebrated its 18th year—an accomplishment worthy of mentioning.
