On September 25, 2013 the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Academy of Sciences of Armenia marked the 100th anniversary of its founder Hovhannes Indjikian, a well-known historian. Why should a former colleague who passed away in 1990 be still so honored? Above all because of the heritage of scientific and exemplary human and patriotic values and acts, which he bequeathed to his younger colleagues and all of us.

According to official statistics there are 33 Genocide survivors living in Armenia today. They are, of course, very old and memory mostly fails them, but they remain beautiful and strong at heart. Most of them have children, grand children and even great grandchildren and live with their families, who owe their lives to these elders’ struggle and ultimate survival.
