During The Armenian Genocide, she shaved off her hair and dressed herself up in men’s fatigues in order to protect herself and to defend her city that was being raped and pillaged by Turks. She was shot in her left rib, and lived with that bullet inside of her for 67 years. 35,000 people were massacred in the city of Hadjin. She was 1 out of the 9 women that survived Hadjin’s massacres in 1920.
