A general panorama of Kessab (Source: Michel Paboudjian collection, Paris).This photograph, originally in black and white, was digitally colorized using DeOldify and was retouched by Houshamadyan.


Kessab and its environs during the Ottoman era.

Houshamadyan will publish a trove of material related to the life, history, and heritage of Armenians who lived in this historic region.

We also hope that natives of Kessab and their descendants, living all around the world, will contribute to this effort to revive their past by contributing digitized photographs, unpublished memoirs, artifacts to Houshamadyan.
