Description

The AGBU Nubarian Library was established in 1928 in France with the express purpose and mission to preserve the Armenian literary heritage. Today it is an important center of scholarly research in Armenian studies, holding thousands of books, periodicals and archival documents and photographs. Historian and former director of the library Raymond Kévorkian looks back to the tragic events that led to the establishment of the Nubarian Library and tells the personal story of one of its founders, the writer Aram Andonian, who having survived the events of April 24, 1915, dedicated his life to keeping alive the legacy of the Armenian intellectuals massacred during the genocide.
