24 April Scientific Substantiations for Reparation and Demand

The international conference "The Armenian Genocide and the Problem of Reparation" was unique in terms of thematics because it was for the first time that the issue of the reparation of the Armenian Genocide was discussed among us on an academic and scientific level. The start of this phenomenon was the pan-Armenian declaration on the occasion of the centennial of the Medz Yeghern where, though slightly, even fearfully, the issue of reparation is also touched upon.

24 April History of A Diary

Dora Sakayan has recently published a book in German, "Man treibt sie in die Wüste" ("They drive them into the desert"), which is a legally valuable document about the Armenian Genocide and comprises the testimonies of Swiss witnesses – Fritz Sigrist-Hilty, engineer of the Berlin-Baghdad Railway during the years of the Genocide, and his wife Clara.
So far, numerous memoirs of foreign witnesses have been published in different languages about the Armenin Genocide. But diaries about the massacres are seldom and they usually include only certain days. While Clara Sigrist-Hilty wrote down her experiences every day for three years, 1915-1917.

24 April Armenian Poetry on the Banners about the Armenian Genocide During Artsakh Movement (Part II)

It is quite clear why the content of the banners of the peaceful rallies of February 1988 changed especially after the Sumgait massacre.
Our fight was constitutional; our people's revolt was expressed with peaceful rallies and marches, while the ideological rebellion was demonstrated on banners, which provide a rich material for research.
Especially notable is the creative aspect of the content of the banners: we could often find in them quotations from our famous people, especially from the verses of our poets. This also speaks to the fact that our writers have created a correct literature for us...

01 October A Deep Veneration: In Memory of Charles Aznavour

If after his performance in the Olympia Hall in Paris in 1959, "France was Aznavourified," as one French journalist wrote, then after the devastating earthquake of December 7, 1988, the planet Earth was "aznavourified," while after October 1, 2018, his loss became universal: Charles Aznavour, who suffered for the fate of his nation and fatherland in the last 30 years, has become a non-national phenomenon…
The ceremony of farewell to Charles Aznavour in his native Paris will become an unsurpassed event in the whole history of Francophonie: thanks to the French television, the whole world was bidding a live farewell to the most Armenian Frenchman and the most French Armenian…
Thank you, France...
Mersi, la France.

25 December Armenology is Our passport: The 75th Anniversary of the Founding of NAS RA

In 1943, during the terrible days of the war, the Academy of Sciences of the Armenian SSR was founded on the basis of Armfan, the Armenian branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
The first institutions of the Armenian Academy belonged to the Armenology field; these were the institutes of literature, language, and history. We can say that the President of the Academy was also from this field: Hovsep Orbely was an archaeologist, orientalist, and public figure.
Why did the AS of the Arm. SSR start its activity with Armenological institutions?

18 December Ancient Civilizations: Manuscripts and Mysteries
  • Sergey Voskanyan

Ancient manuscripts are an evidence of ancient civilizations and are available to few people, and the truths contained in them are as old as the world, one might say. Some of these thoughts are known to many of us. People have mastered them for centuries, not even knowing the names, nationalities, and homelands of their authors. These thoughts are necessary for all, regardless of nationality and skin color, because everyone has the task of preserving their identity on the Earth. Knowledge of these wisdoms will give everyone the opportunity to properly orient themselves and to separate black from white, to preserve their national identity. All of us, without exception, must learn from them, of course if we wish to do so.

11 December The Civil Governor of Kars and His Memories (Part II)

In his memoirs, Stepan Ghorghanyan described the period when the country had everything except national and state interests. The country was plundered with the appetite of a predator.
Kars is not just a toponym for us or a place of a past kingdom. Above all, Kars is a criterion of dignity for us, which we lost, I hope, temporarily... As V. Harutyunyan says, "On October 30, 1920, history put a mirror in front of the Armenian people and said: 'Armenian people, look in this mirror, see your image, and know yourself'." It's murderous. The governor presented our mirror reflection to us.
Every Armenian with state mindset needs to read Stepan Ghorghanyan's memoirs. In my opinion, they should become a guide for all officials, of today or of the future, on how not to rule a country.

04 December The Civil Governor of Kars and His Memories (Part I)

Prior to the appointment of Stepan Ghorghanyan as the Governor of Kars, "the city had neither authorities, nor master," as he writes in his memoirs. But after his appointment, dual power was established there. The Russian-speaking Governor General Hovsepyan was a real punishment for the country, and Ghorghanyan accused him of the fall of Kars, that is, he accused him of treason. Throughout all this time, the Government of the Republic of Armenia left Ghorghanyan's countless complaints and petitions unanswered.
"Russian officials were either bribed or captured in the hands of Dashnaks... The country was in turmoil because of the attacks of external and internal forces."
But who was stronger — the internal or external enemy?...


27 November The Prospect of a Desirable Roof: An Initiative for the Homeless

The program "Under One Roof" will be realized and advance only as a result of our national unity. Armenians should live in their homeland, under their own roof, with pride and dignity. This is the desire of all of us, and this is the most important task of those who implement the "Under One Roof" program.
Let's do our best to support our compatriots who have become homeless for various reasons.

20 November Post-Centenary Analyses: World War I and We (Part II)

World War I ended on November 11, 1918, but for us, Armenians, still a sufficient number of unresolved problems remained after it. On the same day 100 years later, anniversary events were held in Paris, where we are interested in the participation of the Republic of Armenia.
What happened in Paris on November 11 as well as in the preceding and following days? What historical and scientific, political and diplomatic significance did this conference have?...
A peace conference was held in Paris in 1919 also. It is impossible not to touch upon it, though these two conferences are not comparable. Without the knowledge of the past, it is impossible to develop a future strategy.

  • Tigran Hekekyan

Tigran Hekekyan, Professor of Yerevan State Conservatory named after Komitas, Head of Sayat Nova Music School, Art Director and Chief Conductor of the Little Singers of Armenia Choir, is a professor who is very interested in all matters related to pedagogy and education. But the Maestro is not just an educator; he is a teacher in the fullest sense of this word, and his pupils, little singers of Armenia, have been admired by the whole world. In my opinion, the Little Singers of Armenia Choir that was founded by him is a school that first of all educates a human being, an Armenian, a worthy Armenian!
Today we talk with the Maestro about the health of the educational system that has been formed during the years of independence in our republic.


06 November Post-Centenary Analyses: World War I and We (Part I)

 After the defeat of Turkey in World War I and the conclusion of the Mudros Armistice on October 30, 1918, the Turkish troops left the territory of the Republic of Armenia and the region of Kars, and the Russian-Turkish border of 1914 was restored.
A few days after the Mudros Armistice, the Armistice of  Compiègne was concluded on November 11, ending the war. This armistice was signed by the defeated Germany and the winning countries – France, Great Britain, the USA, and other members of the anti-German alliance. Armenia, unfortunately, was an ally of the countries that won.
 In a few days, these same countries, that is, the progressive Europe, will celebrate the Armistice of Compiègne, that is, the 100th anniversary of the victorious end of World War I. It will be celebrated solemnly, certainly with a magnificent military parade, etc. But who remembers or reminds nowadays that the Armenian people paid the most for this victory? The remnants of Western Armenians roam around the world homeless, without a homeland, and without receiving answers to their numerous "why"s. Will they ever get those answers? Yes, in my opinion, if we become an ambitious, dignified and powerful nation and state, and pursue the solution of our problems at the state level. And we do have such an opportunity. We just need a national program and the will to carry it out, following the example of the Jews (although I do not like this comparison). Alas...

30 October Ler Kamsar and the Story of His Life: 130th Birth Anniversary of Ler Kamsar
  • Karine Martirosyan

I am not familiar with a self-portrait of any other writer that would be so complete with the dramatic fullness of the writer's image, with his self-awareness, tragic personality, moral and psychological depth, worldviews, political positions, and other properties. A writer, satirist, who, despite not authoring voluminous works (it also has its reasons, most probably),  managed to fully reveal, through short narratives, almost all the vices of our life of the Soviet period; no area of life escapes his attention, and he observes it all through the prism of his worldview.


23 October New and Unprecedented Armenological Discoveries

Dr. Albert Mushegyan found in the languages of the Ancient East numerous evidences on the Armenian language and on the everyday life, metalworking and weapon art of the Armenian people. The scientist came to the conclusion that when 4000 years ago BCE the Sumerians migrated from the Armenian Highland to Mesopotamia and created a high culture there, they preserved, in their literary language, information about their old compatriots, the Armenians, and about their language. With his new discoveries, Dr. Musheghyan rejects the anti-scientific opinion that there was no Armenian element in the Kingdom of Van or Urartu.

09 October A Story of One Dramatic Life

The life, work and written heritage of one of composer Alexander Spendiaryan's daughters, Marina, are waiting for their researcher... She was a musician, artist, writer, publicist and, together with her sister Tatiana, the founder of the Alexander Spendiaryan House-Museum. After her death, her archive was transferred to the Spendiaryan House-Museum and was opened this year. The archive contains rich materials – photos, documents, letters, personal belongings, Marina's four books, and many articles. Seeing all of this, the staff of the House-Museum was caught by surprise.

02 October Seeds of Immortality of Ler Kamsar

The history of world literature has always been enriched with unique shades by those dedicated people of literary circles who, along with several supporters or friends, have created small groups and carried out solely literary projects. Of course, their path has not been easy, especially if they have also been forced to solve financial problems to achieve their goals.
A small group of like-minded people, whom I call the spiritual heirs of Ler Kamsar, philologist Armen Keshishyan, lawyer Hayk Khemchyan, artist Gevorg Mshetsi-Javrushyan, have gathered around Vanuhi Tovmasyan, the granddaughter of the brilliant satirist, and have undertaken the task of publishing Ler Kamsar's unpublished diaries.

25 September Egishe Charents: His Time, Reality and We (Part II)
  • Ashot Voskanyan

In order to show the time of Charents, it is necessary to show his way that had passed in the passage of space and time, that is, in the interval between the initial and final points that was both dramatic and tragic... Charents is unable to get rid of the overwhelming burden of the "unfailing past." He realized that the greatest loss of the Armenian people is the destruction of the collective genius of the people, that, according to Hayk Asatryan, "the Armenian is not a human of hereditary effort, but of historical memory. He does not continue the work, but only lives as an accomplished fact."


18 September Egishe Charents: His Time, Reality, and We (Part I)
  • Ashot Voskanyan

Appreciating the merits of the Charents experts of the previous period, we should note that the works of Charents need a new interpretation (the same can be also said about the literature of our other great writers). Not only has the social system changed, but also every generation searches only their own in literature and only within their own interests. This is what ensures the progress of scholarly work. In this regard, a noteworthy study on Charents has been carried out by Doctor of Philosophy Ashot Voskanyan.
Why did the philosopher touch upon the works of the genius Charents? What was our contemporary researcher looking for and what has he revealed in the works of Charents?

11 September For Homeless Compatriots; or the Prospect of the Desired Home
  •  Mikayel Dallakyan

In recent months, an unprecedented initiative with the symbolic name "Under One Roof" has attracted my attention on Facebook. The author of this initiative, Mikayel Dallakyan, who temporarily lives abroad, has decided to build apartments for his homeless compatriots living in the homeland.

While others were and are busy with public speeches about each other's accomplished and unaccomplished works, Mr. Dallakyan has raised the flag of struggle against his incurable "disease," which can be overcome by national unity, only by joint efforts, without differentiation of compatriots as former and current ones, as those living abroad and in the homeland. As a result of the implementation of this program, the Armenians living in the homeland will profit, which means our homeland will become stronger.

04 September The Functions of the Reorganized Establishment

In early June, the State Language Inspectorate of the RA Ministry of Education and Science was reorganized into the Language Committee. This administrative body was established as a structure under the RA Government after the adoption of the law "On Language" in 1993 and was to follow the application of this law.
The establishment of this committee was welcomed first of all by the defenders of the purity of the only state language of Armenia. It is known that we had inherited quite a heavy load of foreign words from the previous social system and we had to get rid of it as soon as possible. But to get rid of it, we couldn't use a strike of sword, but only a proper language policy. However, oddly enough, this wasn't easy in our almost mononational republic.
The reasons for this, both objective and subjective, are manifold...

31 July Post-Centenary Analyses: From the History of the First Republic of Armenia (Part II)

Knowledge of the policy of the first Republic of Armenia is still relevant for us today. The first republic was parliamentary, but the policies of the executive, legislative and judicial authorities of the first and third republics can be compared in many aspects.
After the proclamation of the republic, the Government was first formed, then the legislative body — the Parliament of the RA. It turns out that the falsification of elections and bribes have a 100-year history in our reality — 72 of 80 members of the Parliament were Dashnaks.
Failure to learn from one's own history can subsequently result in cruel reparation.

24 July Post-Centenary Analyses: From the History of the First Republic of Armenia (Part I)

When the first Republic of Armenia was proclaimed, two separate National Councils operated in Tbilisi and Yerevan. The Yerevan National Council headed by Aram Manukyan had an undeniable activity. On July 19, prior to the arrival of the Tbilisi National Council in Yerevan, the Special Committee headed by Aram Manukyan actually carried out the functions of the interim government of Armenia. It was supposed that he would become the first Prime Minister of the republic. But Hovhannes Kajaznuni was appointed Prime Minister. During 2.5 years, four prime ministers were replaced in the Republic of Armenia.

17 July Toward the Anniversary of the Great Loretsi. H. Tumanyan - 150 (Part II)
  • Ani Yeghiazaryan

The study of Tumanyan's heritage that began during his life has passed an important way.  Giving worthy respect to our great predecessors for carrying out scientific publications of Tumanyan's works, we should mention that the specialists of the new generation also have something to say in this area, especially in complimenting the work of the specialists of the previous period... The republication of Tumanyan's academic edition is underway. Why do we need this republication? What are the features of the new edition? In structural terms, what changes have been made in the previous 10-volume edition?
