On Friday, January 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th, the Cultural Committee of the Organization of Istanbul Armenians will host the US debut of a special exhibit.

On those two dates, there will be on display at the OIA Hall more than 800 postcards from the collection of world-renowned philatelist Mr. Berc Fenerci, of Montreal. The postcards cover the years 1897-1920, a fateful period for all Armenians.

These postcards, which Mr. Fenerci has collected with great care over the years, take one back to the great cities of Western Armenia which historically were the homes of thriving Armenian populations. The postcards depict these cities in their past glory-with their schools, churches, monasteries, and ruins-and feature rich historical maps that aid one’s journey back to the past.

Among the images included are those of the historic ruins in Ani, of Kars, Erzurum, Van, Mush, Tiflis, Kharpert, Diyarbakir, Zeytun, Marash, Antep, Sis, and of the forts in historic Cilicia. In all, these postcards offer a complete tour of Western Armenia.

Also included are scenes from Armenian neighborhoods of Istanbul, images of men and women in Armenian dress, scenes from Artsakh, Shushi and other locales—all with palpable historic significance. Some of the postcards still bear their original postage stamps, authenticating and further enhancing their historical value.

You are invited to come view this original and remarkable exhibit at OIA Hall, located at 16525 Sherman Way, Unit C3, Van Nuys, The exhibit will open on Friday, January 11th at 8:30 in the evening and will continue on Saturday , January 12th, between the hours 11:00a.m. and 6:00p.m. and Sunday January 13th, 2002 between the hours 11:00am and 5:00p.m.
