Memorial plaque to Regina Ghazaryan, who saved Charents' manuscripts, inaugurated in Yerevan

PanARMENIAN.Net - When the great Armenian poet Eghishe Charents was taken in prison, when his house was surrounded by KGB and his works of recent years were doomed to destruction, a young artist Regina Ghazaryan managed to save and preserve writer's manuscripts. On Mar 13, at 112th anniversary of Charents a memorial plaque was inaugurated on the house that sheltered Regina Ghazaryan.



''Any Armenian would have tried to save the master's works,'' Regina Ghazaryan wrote in her memoirs. ''Charents warned his wife Isabella that only Regina could be trusted with his manuscripts,'' Karine Khorasanyan, the relative of Regina Ghazaryan reminisced.



Regina Ghazaryan managed to save Charents' manuscripts of 1935-1937, including "Requiem to Komitas", "The Nameless", "Songs of Autumn", "Navzike". According ''Many of his works were buried underground and 25% of them lost beyond repair. But the museum still keeps the bags with the dust, which is all that remains from the manuscripts.'' Charents Museum Director Lilit Hakobayan said.
