My Dear Son Garabed: I Read Your Letter, I Cried, I Laughed - Kojaian Family Letters from Efkere Kayseri to America (1912-1919): I Read You (Paperback)
A fascinating exchange of letters between Garabed and Haroutiun Kojaian in the United States with their family back in Efkere/Kayseri (Turkey) 1912-1919. By the end of WWI, still living in the United States, they were left with nothing but their memories, and a stack of letters that had been written to them from their loved ones in Efkere between the years 1912 and 1915. These letters have been transliterated and translated from Armeno-Turkish into Latinised Turkish and English. They provide a fascinating glimpse into pre-World War I village life in the Ottoman Empire during this pivotal time in modern Armenian and Turkish history.
This book reproduced the original letters in facsimile format, their transliteration into Latinised Turkish, as well as English translation. The additional commentaries, photos and photo captions are in both English and Turkish. Includes a glossary of terms.
