The Lost Voice - Aurora Mardiganian: Part 3
Show Notes

After Aurora Mardiganian fainted in 1920, she not only disappeared from public life, but the film disappeared and is now officially considered a lost film. It took 70 years to finally get some news, where an Argentinian-Armenian found something promising… 

In this episode, we also go into Aurora’s life after the film, and talk to people who knew her when she was in the latter stages of her life… We also speak to British MP Tim Laughton about the failure of the UK Government to recognise the Armenian Genocide.

This episode was produced and sound designed by Maxim Saakyan. Editorial support from Al Shaibani.
