Armenian Genocide
Survivor on Losing Her Father

Rahan Kachian, an Armenian immigrant that came to the United States during the Armenian Genocide that began in 1915 and occurred in present-day Turkey, remembers the events of that time in her life. She recalls rebuilding her family and community in America and the terrifying events of what happened to her family–especially her father–as Turkish soldiers ran Armenians out of their villages. Kachian describes her house being surrounded by soldiers as they took everything they could carry and how they burned the surrounding churches and homes. Also investigated in this video are the feelings that present-day Turkish experts have towards the tragic event.
