Kay Mouradian: Voices From The Past

    Kay Mouradian wrote her first novel, A Gift in the Sunlight: An
    Armenian Story after her mother's remarkable survival of the
    Armenian genocide prompted her to examine her own ancestral
    past. After working in various libraries and archives in the
    United States, she visited Hadjin, the village in Turkey where her
    mother and her mother's family, along with 20,000 other
    Hadjintsies, were forced to leave their homes. Traveling across the
    same deportation route to the deserts of Syria where more than a
    million perished in the Armenian Genocide, she became acutely
    aware of the suffering of her mother's generation and the
    lingering sense of injustice they carried.

    This series awakens some of those voices lost to history.
