Subject:The exhibit is part of the Ararat-Eskijian Armenian Museum. The Museum was established in 1985 by Mr. Luther Eskijian, a survivor of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. This historic landmark is part of the Ararat Home of Los Angeles. His vision was to create an Armenian museum telling the Armenian story through artifacts, art, maps, books, coins, and other heirlooms. He began with his own private collection, opening the door for others to donate as well. Mr. Eskijian raised the funds for the construction of the church and the Museum, supervised the project even into his late 70’s, and was involved in much of the growth of the Museum for many years.
