Danish missionary Maria Jacobson, who voluntarily left for Kharberd province of Western Armenia, witnessed the atrocities of the Turkish slaughterers. She not only saved thousands of Armenian orphans’ lives, but also took some notes of what she had witnessed and survived. Her notes and rare photos were miraculously saved and summarized in “Maria Jacobsons’ diary” which became the basis for the film “Another homeland: Maria Jacobsons’ diaries”.
