Unmailed Letters

Author: Hambardzum Galstyan

Publisher: Gomidas Institute

Format: Paperback


With the fall of the Soviet Union came the rise of a select few bold leaders, the founders of the Karabakh Committee, who were determined to reunify Nagorno-Karabakh with Armenia and to protect the constitutional rights of its people. Among them was prolific writer and politician Hambardzum Galstyan, whose activism forever shaped the Armenian national consciousness. Unmailed Letters, now available for the first time in English, compiles Galstyan’s firsthand accounts from Moscow’s notorious Butyrka prison, where he served a six-month sentence in 1988 and 1989. Part memoir, part manifesto, Galstyan’s voice rings clearly through every page -- reminding readers of a powerful life cut tragically short by assassination.
