Hagop Holopikian’s Testimony

Hagop found Kerop (Hampartzoum’s brother) around 1917 and brought him to Dr. Mikael’s house in Mezreh where Hampartzoum happened to be working at the time. A profound reunion as Hampartzoum was sure his brother had been killed by Turks in the two years of Genocide and chaos occuring in Ottoman Turkey at that time. In this testimony he recounts being kept in the same jail Mardiros Chitjian (Hampartzoum’s father) was kept for 3 weeks with brutal beatings.
