To know your past, is to know yourself.

As a native of Urmia and myself a refugee who has fallen into great trouble, I am writing a few short details about my unfortunate nation. For centuries as Christians, we have been crushed by the enemies that surround us. Our best looking girls have been forced to deny their creed; our men have been killed, our homes plundered, and our property has been robbed.

The wife of Rev. David Jacob of Urmia, published in the Armenian Journal "Ararat" of London, January, 1916.
