It has been over 5 years when Maurice Missak Kelechian discovered the location of St. Joseph Antoura French College in Lebanon. During WW1 it was a Turkish orphanage under the direction of Jemal Pasha & Halide Edib as the director, where about 1000 Armenian & 200 Kurdish children were forcefully Turkified.
On March 2010 Robert Fisk’s article ended “this place of sadness, shaded by tall trees. Neither name-plate nor headstone marks their mass grave.” http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/fisk/robert-fisk-living-proof-of-the-armenian-genocide-1918367.html
By the great generosity of KOHAR Symphony Orchestra & Choir the Antoura College cemetery was inaugurated on Sept 22 2010 by a Khachkar (Cross Stone), headstone and a Bronze statue in memory of Armenian orphans.
