The woman behind the Prize

Aurora, the inspirational woman behind the Prize

When we decided to create a global humanitarian Prize, we looked for inspiration at the stories of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide.

Aurora Mardiganian was a young girl who lived through horrors of the Genocide - forced to witness and experience terrible acts, but was then able to escape; making an epic journey to build a new life in America.
