“We, your children will
Magnificently build the New Dawn.”
By Hagop Vartivarian
ENGLEWOOD, N. J. – The Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) of Greater New York has undertaken a series of events to commemorate the talented writers who were among the first victims of the Armenian Genocide. The first writer to be included in this series is Taniel Varuzhan. On May 29 a large audience assembled in the New Jersey TCA Center. It was a pleasure to attend an event similar to the serious literary evenings which used to take place in the main Armenian communities of the Middle East. Many of those present grew up with the inspiration of writers like Krikor Zohrab, Varuzhan, Siamanto, Rupen Sevag, Tlgadintsi, and remain firmly attached to the Western Armenian literary world.
