Akhpars

2010

Duration: 14 min.


In Armenia “Akhpar” was a name given by locals to the Armenien repatriates, in the beginning to those from Europe and Arab countries, and later to all Armenian repatriates. Akhpar was used by the locals as an adjective and had offensive and degrading connotation. This practice became fertile ground for stirring up social intolerance.
