Daniel varujan

Daniel Varujan or "Taniel Varoujan" (Armenian: Դանիէլ Վարուժան, Դանիէլ Չպուքքարեան April 20, 1884-August 26, 1915) is one of the significant Armenian poets of the 20th century. He was one of the greatest Armenian poets of this century. At the age of 31, when he was blossoming to become a poet of international stature, he was brutally murdered (see below) by the government of "The Young Turks", like Siamanto, Krikor Zohrab and many others, as part of the officially planned and executed Genocide of the whole Armenian nation. Varujan was born in the Prknig village of Sivas, Turkey. After attending the local school, he was sent in 1896, the year of the Hamidian massacres, to Istanbul, where he attended the Mkhitarian school. He then continued his education at Mourad-Rafaelian school of Venice, and in 1905 entered the Ghent University in Belgium, where he followed courses in literature, sociology and economics. In 1909 he returned to his village where he taught for three years. After his marriage with Araksi Varujan in 1912, he became the principal of St. Gregory The Illuminator School in Istanbul.
