About this title:

Synopsis:

Dr. George Djerdjian (1870-1947), grandfather of the writer, took 240 photographs of his hometown of Arabkir and his college town of Erzeroum between 1900 and 1907, of which only about 100 survive. These photographs capture the way of life of a people that within a decade would become extinct in Anatolia, their homeland for over 3,000 years. The photographs are varied and have been arranged under separate headings such as water, land, people, churches, schools, economic life, social life, and political life. For over a century, these photographs were stored in a grey steel box, which migrated from Arabkir to Alexandria, Egypt, where it stayed for almost 50 years. Then it moved with descendants to Khartoum, Sudan, where it stayed for 20 years, then onto London, England for 30 years, and then to Washington DC for about 10 years.

Now this collection of photographs has finally been exposed to daylight after a century of darkness.

About the Author:

George Jerjian is a writer, speaker, and marketer.

Born in 1955 in Khartoum, educated in England from the age of 10, graduating in 1973 with a Bachelor's degree in Business from Bradford University Managament Centre, he spent the next twenty years in marketing in Africa, the UK and the US.

In 1993, following a career change, he graduated with a Master's degree in Journalism from New York University and won a college EMMY award for his documentary, Emerging Airlines: The Kiwi Story.

George is also a Chartered Marketer and a Distinguished Toastmaster.

His previous books include: Seven Ages; The Battle of the Portals; Ecosystem; Xerox Firestorm; The Truth Will Set Us Free: Armenians and Turks Reconciled; Arabkir: Homage to an Armenian Community; Sarkis Izmirlian: A Biography; and Seeking God: A Pilgrimage in the Holy Land. In 2014, Arabkir was reprinted. A few of his books have been translated into Chinese, Dutch, and Turkish.

He is married with two daughters and lives in London.
