My Armenian Genesis: the Last Survivor
A primal scream erupted in the Charity Ward of Providence Hospital in Washington, DC. Crying out for Mother,baby Movsisian felt her loving grip for only minutes after birth. Judy's bassinet was wheeled away, then hidden, once her birth blood was washed away. Her family was nearly destroyed in the Armenian Genocide; only 5 survived from Nor Kegh, Charsandjak, Kharpert, in the Euphrates River Valley. They emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1913 and 1921. Fate determined that this newborn would be the last one to inherit the family name. Cloaked in secrecy, Mary's identity remained a secret from her until she was 38! Mary did not know that Armenians had origins from the Cradle of Civilization and were the first people to accept Christianity.Her birth records were sealed, then falsified. How did she find her family? Mary's tenacity resulted in her discovering 'something.' How did THE LETTER, written 9-17-1945, and hidden inside an old box in a closet, yet found by accident 42 years later, solve Mary's mystery?
