FROM ARARAT TO THE CARPATHIANS by Dr. Claude Mutafian

Among the numerous Armenian Diasporas around the world, the one in Carpathian Europe covers present-day Rumania, Western Ukraine, and Eastern Poland. It is particularly little-known, perhaps because most of the Armenian population living there has been mostly assimilated. Since the end of WWII, one notices an important revival, so that it is time to launch a general study of that subject.

We shall try, as much as possible, to answer the following questions: when and why did Armenian communities settle in that area, what were their routes, what have been their relations with the other ethnic groups, what did they bring to the various local cultures?
