The First 50 Pages

Hampartzoum writing in his garden with great enthusiasm!

In 1974 while Sara was teaching at Dixie Canyon Elementary, Hampartzoum decided to write his memoir and began by writing, “It is wise to learn a foreign language, friendships are made when you speak in an other language”. Hampartzoum was proud and most expressive in his mother language Armenian. Therefore Hampartzoum always wrote in Armenian, here is a sample of the first 50 pages of his writings.
