Calendar documen’s destruction of Armenian Churches
The Research on Armenian Architecture (RAA) organization has published a 2005 calendar depicting the fate of Armenian churches in Turkey–which stood intact at the turn of the of the 20th century–but stand effectively leveled today.
The RAA uncovers and researches Armenian architectural monumen’s in the territory of historical Armenia–primarily Western Armenia and Cilicia–and in the neighboring countries of Georgia–Azerbaijan–Nakhichevan–and Iran.
Their goal is to take photographs and map existing strictures in order to rescue them on paper–and present Armenian public and international community–before ultimate eradication.
The RAA began its activities at the end of the 1960s–and was established in Germany in 1982. In 1998–it registered and operates as a non-profit organization in Armenia. More detailed information on their activities can be found on www.raa.am.
