An Armenian Saga

Logo AFUS (Association of Former UNESCO Staff Members)

Conference organised by the Frendship Club of AFUS (Association of Former UNESCO Staff). Speaker: Georges Kutukdjian, President of AFUS.
Through the history of his family, whose two branches had different destinies, Georges Kutukdjian sketches one family's three waves of emigration from 1870 till 1960. This is the tale of a diaspora reaching from Anatolia to Lebanon and to the United States, from Cairo to Latin America, France, Central Africa and Australia, and from Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro to Canada. While the account may have little historical connotation, it tells the story of a family--unique yet representative of Armenian daily life.
