about

A personal history of a dedicated group of American and Canadian missionaries and relief workers who saved thousands of Armenian, Greek and Turkish orphans from starvation, disease and harm in the Talas region during the dying days of the Ottoman Empire. From the initial jubilance of the Young Turk revolution, through the period of increased state repression, culminating in the violence and destruction of world war and genocide, the courage and kindness of these humanitarians shine through as a beacon of light and hope.
