These Four Men Should Always Be Remembered
From my memories and feelings the most humanitarian, benevolent, altruistic men who helped survivors and deportees are:
Dr. Mikahil Hagopian, Archbishop Mekhitarian, Nerses Melik Tankian and Gabriel Babayan
Dr. Mikahil Hagopian
A most esteemed, self-sacrificing doctor during the most terrifying days of the 1915 Genocide. While fearing for his own life and that of his family, he still tended to the gravely ill, gave money to the needy and did his best to help those fleeing from the claws of the barbaric Turk.
