My Mother’s Voice

Apr 28, 2014

Flora Munushian“Becoming an orphan after losing her family in the Armenian Genocide, my mother took a chance that the man in the picture would make a good husband…”

The Armenian Genocide was a planned campaign by the Young Turk government to annihilate the Christian Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire. Embarked upon in 1915, during WWI, the deportation and decimation of the Armenians across Anatolia, modern-day Turkey, continued until 1923. (St. Gregory the Enlightener Armenian Church)

It is said that 1.5 million people died during the Armenian Genocide. This number includes 14-year-old Flora Munushian’s family.

My Mother’s Voice is Flora’s story as told by her daughter Dr. Kay Mouradian.

  1. I read this book, inhaled it really; a fine tribute to her mother and others. The courage of others in history should spur us on. Left a review either on Goodreads or Amazon; would have written the author whom I met at Author’s Day at Central Library, but couldn’t find address to.

    wonderful book
