Hye Etch - The online
book about "The Armenians"
By Hye Etch
name is John Semerdjian and I would like to welcome you to 'Hye Etch'.
For the past few years I've been exploring the Internet in search of Armenian
related sites, a place where someone can go and learn about this proud
nation - Their history, culture, religion, country, genocide, etc.
During my explorations, I came
across few good Armenian sites and some not that good ones, which contained
certain amount of material relating to a specific subject, but were presented
in a poor and hard to read layout, with missing information and no quality
Most important of all, I did not
come across a site where I could find information about all the above mentioned
subjects in one place. A site that offered ease of navigation, good layout,
quality pictures and factual literature. That's when I decided to create
'Hye Etch' (Armenian Page).
The 'Hye Etch' on-line book is
a compilation of resources and material relating to Armenians and Armenia,
written by educators, scholars and people who are experts in their own field.
Its main aim is to introduce and educate both Armenians and non-Armenians
about the history, arts, cultural, genocide and religion of this culturally
The 'Hye Etch' on-line book contains
over 190 articles (about 860+ pages) and more than 550 quality images,
and is constantly growing.
'Hye Etch' is an independent, non-partisan
web site with no links or affiliations with any religious, political or
social organisation. I welcome all literary and artistic contributions
(of Armenian nature) and will be more than happy to give credit to their
authors and contributors.
In conclusion, I would like to thank
you for visiting and I am sure you will leave this site with a wealth of
knowledge and pride. Don't forget to tell all your friends and relatives about
