I look forward to reading Victoria Waterman's work on little-known stories of women's resistance during the Armenian Genocide. I am inspired by the dedication an passion with which she pursues this project.

Chandler Chat 407 Victoria Waterman
On this episode of the Chandler Chat, host Harriette Chandler interviews first-time author Victoria Atamian Waterman on her newly published historical fiction novel "Who She Left Behind." The novel captures the Armenian immigrant experience, from the historically overlooked female perspective, across multiple generations spanning from the late Ottoman Empire to 1990s New England, and reflects her own journey to unearth and address some of the lingering trauma left by the horrific Armenian Genocide of 1915.
