YEREVAN — The Armenian Genocide Museum Institute has obtained a rare original photo taken by an unknown photographer in 1915.
The photo depicts homeless Armenian orphans wandering in the streets of Diyarbakir and Austrian soldiers giving them bread.
Hayk Demoyan, Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, uploaded the photo on his Facebook page.
“This can be inferred from the German inscription on the photograph. The picture was most likely taken by German soldiers as it was found in Germany.
A truly unique photographic sample that depicts the consequences of the Genocide,” wrote Demoyan on his Facebook page.
