UK ARMENIANS & WW1
UK Armenians and WW1 is a 2-year project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim was to create an audio-visual archive of the experiences of the Armenian community in the UK during WW1. A number of interviews were conducted with project contributors who kindly shared their own personal family stories. Testimonies of War, a short documentary was also produced based on these interviews. Further research was also carried out in relation to Armenian Soldiers, Doctors, Refugees and other community members. These formed the basis of multiple exhibitions.
