Anjar 1939–2019

Rebuilding Musa Dagh in Lebanon

Edited with text by Vartivar Jaklian. Text by Hossep Baboyan, Susan Pattie.

Rebuilding an Armenian city in Lebanon: an astounding architectural history, told through archival and contemporary photographs

The city of Anjar lies about 37 miles east of Beirut, in Lebanon. Its history borders on the miraculous. It was conceived, designed and built between the end of the 1930s and the early 1940s, constructed from scratch by its majority Armenian population—all survivors of the Armenian Genocide, originally from Musa Dagh in present-day Turkey—who managed to buy the land with support from the French colonial government. The planning allotted each family some land and a house, and three Armenian Apostolic schools were built.

In celebration of the city’s 80th anniversary, the architect and photographer Vartivar Jaklian (born 1976) and architect and filmmaker Hossep Baboyan (born 1976) document and discuss this utopia through historical and current photographs, as well as companion texts.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Flaunt

Hannah Jackson

Documenting Anjar 80 years after its settlement by refugees of the Armenian Genocide is not only important for the sake of cultural and historical preservation, but also to serve as a reminder of how refugees are perceived during an increasingly volatile era rife with immigration debate.
