Presentation of Dr. Vartan Tachdjian’s New Book

On Sunday, November 17, 2019, the presentation of Dr. Vartan Tachdjian’s book “From Deportation to Medicine” took place at the hall of St. Gregory the Illuminator Catholic Church in Glendale.

On behalf of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, Rev. Fr. Ghevont Kirazian attended and read the Prelate’s congratulatory message.

His Eminence had stated that despite growing up in difficult circumstances in a family that had found refuge in Lebanon from the Genocide, Dr. Tachdjian grew up imbued with national pride and maintained that sentiment throughout his life.

Touching on the book, which is an account of the author’s life from childhood, to adolescence, to medical school, to his immigration to Canada and later to the U.S., the Prelate noted that the book encompasses correspondences, experiences, nationalism, and reverence toward the Armenian language. He concluded by blessing Dr. Tachdjian’s service and wishing him many healthy years to come so that he may continue his mission.
