Judith Yasaryan gave us the following letter of this “writer of resistance”

letter dated March 8, 1919 that Yessayan sent to Boghos Nubar Pasha, the head of the Armenian Delegation at the Paris Peace Conference. In this letter she describes how Armenian women and children were treated during the War and how the enslaved Armenian women and children should be freed from their captors. In effect, Yessayan addressed the fact that women and children were used as weapons of war (or genocide) during World War I. In 2008 it was finally acknowledged by the United Nations that rape was a “weapon of war”.
