Towards Golgotha narrates the Memoirs of pharmacist Hagop Arsenian, a survivor of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Written originally in Armenian, it contains two parts. The first part narrates the early life of Arsenian in the suburbs of Constantinople and then the eventual deportation of his whole family all the way to Aleppo, Syria.
The second part describes the Arsenian’s family life in Palestine from 1919 until 1940 especially in Jerusalem and Gaza, where Hagop Arsenian practices as a pharmacist.
His granddaughter Arda Arsenian Ekmekji has translated the whole manuscript into English with historical annotations and references.
The book includes a Foreword written by French Historian: Prof. Raymond Kevorkian, and a Preface, Introduction, Prologue and Epilogue by the Translator. These contain 250 pages of the Original Manuscript.
